TeamViewer Crashing on Mac

I have a fresh installation of the latest version of TeamViewer on my Mac, on High Sierra 10.13.3. The issue is that the app begins to open, the taskbar icon shows up at the top, and I open it up, see the open screen, and it completely closes itself a few seconds later.

There's no crash report or application error like some applications give when they crash. Why is it automatically closing? Is there something wrong with my installation or is there a version incompatibility with High Sierra?

    I have the same problem with the last version of teamviewer (v13.1.2559).Teamviewer crashes and doesn't open anymore.

    Teamviewer works with v12 but the other computer works with v13, then I can't connect on it.

    The crash report :

    To any team viewer tech reading this, I have a crash report but it's too large to fit here, please contact me and I will send it to you by whatever method you like. With my setup on 10.13.3 it doesn't even open, it just generates the crash report.



  • I've updated to the latest version and that's when the issue started. It was fine until this update.

    The app never even fully loads.

    I've Uninstaller and reinstalled it 4 times now. Rebooting between uninstall and reinstall.

    Any magic tricks up your sleeve?

    I am having the exact same issue with TeamViewer13. It worked fine until the last update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled I don't know how many times. Emptying trash and restart inbetween installs same issue. I have also tried CCleaner no change. I open TeamViewer the icon jumps for a few seconds then goes away and TeamViewer never opens.

  • I erased the app
    Than with CC I deleted the all the auto start demons and clean including the miscellaneous files
    Than restart and install the new version
  • Not fixxed.  I removed earlier versons ans reinstalled with latest version.  Won't start.  error and forces me out.

  • I was forced to update Teamviewer on my mom's a Mac (running El Capitan) to match the version on my home computer. I downloaded version 14.1.3399, but it crashes immediately upon opening. I tried deleting the old version and all references using AppCleaner and then reinstalling, but had the same results.
