    I am having problems with the connection with teamviewer, it tells me that I am giving it a commercial use, when it is not. I have several raspberry connected for use by radio amateurs meteorological program, etc ... Someone can help me. Thank you

  • Hello! I want to know whether you can use TeamViewer for personal purposes to connect to a remote virtual server, for example, rented to Amazon. The server is used to set up a trading terminal for automated Forex trading.
    Thank.

  • Hi all,

    about 6 months ago I opened a ticket because, erroneously, it seemed that the use of my teamviewer was commercial. I made it clear that I use teamviewer only to help friends and relatives. Today I realized again this problem, which did not allow me to help a friend in need. Can you verify and reset my account?

    Thank you

    I am using Teamviewer at my home to connect to the laptop of my wife and doughters from my desktop. Yesterday I was flagged as commercial user and the connection drop out in 30sec. I dont know why. I have submitted the form with my logs. No response at all. I moved to **Third Party Product** (laggy but I can use it). Is there any way to have answer from TV team and to start over tu use TV again? 

  • I am requesting help for a person who is disabled (quadriplegic paralysis).  I recently viewed a question on Experts-Exchange.com, from this individual, and I feel compelled to try to help as much as possible.  This person recently started to get pop-ups and is now blocked from using the software due to the frequency of his FREE version personal usage, which he needs due to his disability.  He cannot afford to pay the subscription fee, and I am hopeful someone at TeamViewer.com can assist him with a license key.  I've attempted to reach out to the VP and CEO of Teamviewer directly, and I am also posting here in an effort to get someone to see this and hopefully help this person.  I frequently answer questions for people on Experts Exchange, ...which I do not get paid for btw.  Hopefully someone can get this message to the right people and make this person's life a little easier.

    If possible, I would like to put them in touch with someone at TeamViewer to assist.

    Uninstall the current version, then go to http://download.teamviewer.com/download/version_9x/TeamViewer_Setup.exe

    Install version 9 then go to:
    Extra's>Advanced>Show Advanced Options:

    Change Check for new version to "NEVER"
    Change Install new version automatically to "No automatic updates"

    This all started with Version 10 in 2013/2014

    Hi @joyce_you,

    Thank you for your post. 

    Can you please restart your TeamViewer service? Should work properly afterwards. :) 
    If there are any further questions, please let us know. 

    Hi @rtsheole,

    Thank you for your message. If you are connecting to your colleagues in a work environment, a license is required. TeamViewer is free only for personal use to help family and friends. 
    Please let us know, if you have any further questions. 

    I wish you both a great week and all the best, 
    Natascha.

  • I use the free version of team viewer for individuals but I always get a message saying that the trial period has expired, how can I solve this problem? Use windows 10

  • Thanks for you reply. It is just solved after I restarted the laptop ^ ^

  • Already done. Still waiting!

    For the moment I'm using **Third Party Product**. At least I can access my PC. It's not as performing as Team Viewer, but it's totally free and it might become a valid solution if TeamViewer staff goes on in asking for a subscription in such and unfair and not motivated way.

    It seems that they organize this ******* once a year. I got the same problem a year ago and finally resolved it sending the form and being reset in a week.

    Hope the work eficeintely and they solve our PERSONAL problems fast, because we use it for personal use, not commercial ad there is no need to go to another solution.

    You should think as Msoft did... they didn't care about using their products at home (maybe sometimes "illegaly" copied) , it was a way to have all the people to ask to use it at work and it is in the companies business where Msoft got their money.... Just the error IBM did with their OS2 product that tried to correct... tooooooo late.

    Regards

  • Hi, did you ever get a resolution? I got the same thing a week ago, a few hours after installing another trial version, which then expired this morning, 7 days later. The email TeamViewer sent doesn't address how to reset your license. They make it sound like it's all set, like they did something on their end. I suspect they need to do something but they didn't actually do it. 

    I’ve already uninstalled [including removing the settings], removed the TeamViewer [client] ID from the registry, deleted the computer from the online console, rebooted, ran CCleaner and Glary to clean up any remnants and reinstalled.  TeamViewer somehow still knows what the ID was and automatically fills it in, so it still thinks my trial license is expired. I cannot use it.

    This should just not be happening when someone is just using it for personal use.

    Thanks!

    PS I just saw that the TeamViewer ID is tied to multiple hardware and software identifiers on the computer and has nothing to do with the online account.

  • TEAM VIEWER 14 FREE VERSION IS ASKING ME TO BUY A LICENSE. IT'S SUPPOSE TO BE FREE AND THEIR IS NO ONE TO CALL TO GET THE ANSWER ON HOW TO KEEP THE FREE VERSION. 

  • Hello,

    I use TeamViewer for personal use and for 1 week, when I log in, I have a message that tells me that I use it for business purposes and that I have to buy a lisence.

    I can only log in for 1 minute and the connection turns off.

    I'm fine remove the application of 2 pc that I use and then re-install the application, it's always the same.

    How to recover my personal use?

    Good morning. I only use a private and non-commercial use of Team Viewer, but a few days ago the system prevents me from using it because it mistakenly believes that it makes commercial use and connects me only for a few seconds.
    I use it only to connect with another pc of my property and that of my elderly parents (83 and 90 years of age) to pay their bills and other similar things ...
    These are my accesses ... what use is it if not private ???
    Could you help me solve the problem, please?
    Thank you!

  • Hi,

    With no reason I'm accused of using Teamviewer for business usage.
    The software is on my personal laptop and I use it to get remote control of my personnal desktop unit.

    The only reason I could think of it that my personnal laptop is registered to my company domain to be able to access to the company's network folders and printers.

    Already sent an email but no answer...

    ok it just happened to me too, i was connected to another laptop in the same lan, it instantly timeouted and then it locks me out for the next 10 minutes. So that's it good riddance TV, I'm right this moment starting to investigate what's the best free alternative for you.

  • Same problem here.

    I use TW for a personnal use ...

  • Good morning,
    I am a private user who sporadically used Team Viewer free, for strictly personal use and never for commercial purposes.
    For several days I can not connect in remote access and is blocked, perhaps by mistake.
    I kindly ask you to unlock my ID ... so that you can reuse your great product again. Thank you. Looking forward to a favorable feedback, I offer
    With best regards

    Jack

    So, back from my investigation for TV alternatives. I have to confess that I don't think that there are any with all the features TV has:

    - you have to either install a client / server (or both) if you want to access from / the machine

    - you have to connect via a browser

    - there are shady companies behind these (a Russian one or a Vietnamese that single handedly seemed to have pulled off a TV ripoff)

    - etc.

    I did fill the form here: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/support/commercial-use-suspected/ seemingly faster than https://www.teamviewer.com/en/support/personal-use-verification/ but I haven't got any hope, because their paradigm has shifted.

    This guy explains it well here: [Removed because of Community Guidelines]

    So even if I (and think others as well) hobbysts out there would find a way to pay for a perpetual licence to use for their own personal use (not remunerated in any way, be that direct / indirect), this simply won't happen, and we do all agree that what they offer as business pricing is simply to high for any individual to afford.

    There are 2 alternatives that somewhat could do the trick, one is browser based (you now the most popular browser on Earth has an app which allows remote connection), in LAN you could always rely on the native RDP protocol, or there seems to be another (smaller than TV) European company, in a neighbour country, that has developped a protocol that also detects local installations and allows you to connect over the Internet by knowing the IP (haven't tried this one yet, because I can't install the other end).

    I'll try as well to find TV version 9 and see how "bad" the past was.
