    My laptop broke and I've dug out an old laptop which I haven't used in the last three years, maybe more.

    I've updated TV then bam! "commercial blabla detected". On a laptop (WIN7) that had to do 120+ windows updates before it could be used. Ffs, this is getting beyond ridiculous!

    So i got this box poping when connecting to my home PC. I tried creating a ticket but it requires me to have a license to even create a ticket... What should i do to prevent my account from being blocked.

  • Hallo,

    it's the third or fourth time I'm blocked for suspected commercial use.

    I'm retired, 72 years old and I never and never use TW in a commercial environment. I use it to play Flight Simulator with  5/6 other fellows. From time to time we make some maintenance to our Pc'S. That's all.

    I have sent you many times my log history and you restore my connection after this.

    This time: no answer at all.

    Please, please could you be so kind as to free my connection??

    Thanks in advance and best rega

    I'm sick of hearing about that Any... it's no viable replacement.

  • SO, pay 500$/year for a TV license :P lol
  • when i install time i selected both of the above instead of personal / non-commercial use how to convert it back.....i unistalled several times still the same

  • I have sent in the form to have my account reset twice. So far, it has been working after the 2nd reset. I have run TV and **Third Party Product** side by side and every time I do, the quality of video in the TV link is better. Text and icons are easier to see. It also feels faster, snappier. All things being equal, I would definitely pick TV over **Third Party Product**. Maybe it's just because I am more familiar with it but the image quailty really is better.

    That said, after all that has transpired, I have accepted the fact that I cannot rely on TV as the sole method of remote access, so I have them both set up. If TV starts with the commercial use pop ups and disconnects again, I won't try to get them to reset it a third time. I will just delete it from all machines and go to **Third Party Product**. Then I will pick another remote access method to back up **Third Party Product**. What I have learned from this is that if remote access is critical, then there should be at least 2 methods of doing it set up.

    So to all of you getting whacked with TV commerical use pop ups and are ready to move on, you should really be looking for TWO alternatives, and when you go through the hassle of migrating whatever computers you need to access, set up BOTH remote access methods of your choice. JMO

    80 bucks or 500 is the same to me. I'm not paying a cent for a remote app.

  • **Third Party Product** from Google Chrome does the same thing as TW and is free.

  • First of all, I would like to thank you for the teamviewer software that you have given us. It's very effective and free for personal users. With your terms, I am a personal user, I only use software to control desktop computers on my laptop, sometimes helping my brother solve some problems. As you can see at the attached screenshot, there are not too many connected computers: 2 or 3... here is screenshot:

    (Edited by a moderator. Please attache screenshots instead of putting URL links)

    But I get the message that I am using for commercial purposes and need to use premium.
    Please support for me.
    Sincerely yours!

  • same problem here, I use TV with to help my family ( from a range of 50 to 66 years old ) in their easy computer problems and to connect my computer via mobile phone etc... suddenly get the same alert and closed the connections.
  • Hi,  a few days ago teamviewer interrupts the connection due to suspected commercial use, but I am a teacher and I don't use teamviewer for commercial purposes, I need to use it to connect to the school server, Please let me use it in this way, thanks a lot.

    Regards, Gianluca G.

  • There is 5 minute limit for my connection to my home computer. I dont use it for a commercial use. I was connecting to my computer at home. Please help me to improve it that program takes me to use my computer without limit.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi guys

    I have problem with the Teamviewer sessions

    I have several PCs attached to my Teamviewer account but when I connect from a specific PC with Win7 OS, Teamviewer disconnect me after a short time and show me a message: "The free sessions are only allowed for non-commercial purposes"

    I'm using an account and an installation for private use ...

    From the other PCs this problem doesn't occur. the session remains alive. I have tried to uninstall/reinstall Teamviewer (I have also cleaned the entries in the registry)

    Thanks Pietro

    .. another umpteenth idea of the TV new marketing department ?

    After the useless and tremendous internal spellcheck, now the mandatory advertisement. At each TV session.

    I believe that soon or later TV will drop off us, considered by Team Viever marketing people and sales dept. as nasty scroungers.

    Here the screenshot (Edited by a moderator. Please attache the screenshot instead of putting the URL link)

     

    Anybodys elese is experienceing this beutiful TeamViewer gift ?

    Yes, I get those ads too. At least they are only advertising their own products so far and not other company's products. To me it's like the cable channels that waste so much time advertising what shows they have but at least don't advertise products. Annoying and unnecessary but could be worse.

    Well, TV staff and team doesn't care us (non professional users) in spite of the fact that they keep on claiming that it really exists a possible free use for 'Personal use' only.
    I've been blocked for the second time (with an offer of 10% discount on a professional license !!! :catlol: :manlol:... So funny, I was helping my sister, from home to home, on both our private local networks !

    They lie, of course! But they can't find the courage and honesty to say frankly and straight on that they no longer want users for free use.

    It was really a good remote control software... But not any tool as true value when those who manage its development and production have no moral values.
    My TV will not be easy to replace, but nothing and nobody is irreplaceable !... Anyway, I don't want to keep on playing this mad game, like a lottery, anymore... I let TV staff and managers play it without me.

    Isn't it funny that I had to answer a 'Feed Back form' asking about my satisfaction and notation !!!
    Here after what I did reply :

    "I'll consider again to useTV (which was a wonderful remote control sofware) when its staff  and managers will say clearly that they don't want anymore free of charge users... Unless it stops to block its users in personal use... But, anyhow, I'll never buy a Professional license. I'm a simple retired person and really not wealthy. 

    At least if you wanted  to be fair, you'll not censore those who post the name of alernative (third party) competitor ! Doing it, you shut and lock all the doors in order to let non professional users with not any solution.... Neither still using TeamViewer, for free, nor any other remote control software... Is it fairplay , really ?"

    So, I will not say here which other remote control software I'm using now because it will be censored (here, censore is something which works well at least ! Much better than true help !) ... Even though it is not as good as TV, it's OK and it will be always working with no sudden, for a month interruption at least)

    Farewell TeamViewer !... Welcome "other... Viewer"

    Frankly dear 'Moderators', what was so unpleasant to read for you in  what I just posted a few minutes ago ?

    Did you feel really so uncomfortable for censoring it ? Was it too much true ?

  • Yeah, this is ridiculous.  Same issue here.

    Switching to **Third Party Product**.  Refusing to buy TV products, after this stunt.

  • same **bleep** is happening to me !!! i am trying to make an order for my sister and i can't coz every 5 minutes the connections shuts down !!! that's a joke !!! i can even send my logs to see that i am connecting on the same 3-4 pcs the last 3 years

  • Same problem. I have home media server and it need maintense sometimes. Also i can run on it game server, but in last 2 weeks i cant do anything with my server. I have to go to balcony with monitor, mouse and keyboard. This is SO  UNCOMFORTABLE. What we should do to continie using free license?

    I don't work for TeamViewer, but I believe that would be seen as commerical use - you're connecting to a place of business. TeamViewer states that a personal license covers connecting to a personal computer from another personal computer. If there is a valid use case for you to be able to access the school's servers from your home, your school should implement a system, such as a VPN. Or they can pay for the business license.

    TeamViewer has just started saying that they are detecting commercial use from my logins. I only access a machine from home using either my phone, or my laptop tethered through my phone. No idea how they can be deducing that I'm using it from a place of business, because I'm not.

    I'm going to start to look for alternatives.

    Hi, a few days ago teamviewer interrupts the connection due to suspected commercial use, but I am a teacher of  Qilu University of Technology( Shandong Academy of Sciences) and I don't use teamviewer for commercial purposes, I need to use it to connect to the school server, Please let me use it in this way, thanks a lot.

  • I am an individual and have been using the free version for just over year. However, for some time now (Since updating to version 13) I keep getting random niggling issues/bugs, making it awkward to use the software as it keeps moving the 'goalposts.' This morning I got the same message as the above post. I am afraid it is the last straw! I have already been looking around for an alternative and have found two contenders which have great reviews and appear to be far superior than Teamviewer.

    Bye bye Teamviewer.
