No desktop shortcut on silent MSI installations

Hello Teamviewer Community,

Is there a command line parameter to avoid the creation of a desktop shortcut for the Teamviewer 12 MSI package ?  (Ex: "NODESKTOPSHORTCUT"=1)

I looked the MSI package with Orca but i didn't find the entry line for the desktop shortcut...

Thanks for your help !

  • We are Upgrading soon, it would be a really good improvement from the Teamviewer 11 package. Also if there could be a way to remove the first login pop up from the MSI.

    Right now we have a custom MST for the MSI to import the Reg settings + block the first login popup from an active setup registry config and then we remove the shortcut with a .bat.

     

  • Any news on this one ? What is the msi switch to remove the desktop shortcut? 

    Thanks

    Any update on this feature?

    We are about to deploy the TV Host in the organization and I would avoit du use a cleanup script to delete unwanted shortcuts on the desktop.

    Regards.

    I run this when I deploy it with MDM: 

    cmd.exe /c "del "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TeamViewer 12 Host.lnk" /f /q"

    hope this helps.

  • Do you mind generalizing your script for installation and the deletion of the TV icon.

    When I run my script, it runs the del script but TV hasn't finished installing, so it states could not find the shortcut.

  • So Everyone,

    this Post is Solved, so I don't know why people are still posting here.

    teamviewer host is now a full fledge MSI, and not an MSI Wrapper for an exe so no need for a second command to delete the shortcut. It's posted at the Top.

    Here is My command Line

    msiexec /i TeamViewer_Host.msi DESKTOPSHORTCUTS=0 CUSTOMCONFIGID=YOURIDHERE IMPORTREGFILE=1 /qb /l*v C:\Temp\TeamViewer_TeamViewerHost_13.2.5287.log

    if i can help anyone,

    BTW it not documented but the old way of renaming the MSI with -IDC %ID% does not work now. you need the CUSTOMCONFIGID=

    Regards,
