This article applies to all TeamViewer users and customers.
TeamViewer provides 32-bit and 64-bit versions of our desktop clients on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
You should install the version that matches the architecture of your operating system:
- For 32-bit operating systems, you must install the 32-bit version of TeamViewer.
- For 64-bit operating systems, we recommend installing the 64-bit version of TeamViewer. However, the 32-bit version will also work on a 64-bit operating system.
📌Note: It's not possible to run both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of TeamViewer on the same computer together. You must uninstall one version before installing the other.
The 64-bit versions of TeamViewer allow for more computer memory to be used if needed. This is especially beneficial for heavy usage scenarios with several TeamViewer sessions running simultaneously, connecting to remote systems with high-resolution displays.
💡Hint: If you update from a 32-bit to a 64-bit version your TeamViewer ID will stay the same.
TeamViewer provides the following clients for Windows, macOS and Linux:
- 32-bit versions of all TeamViewer clients.
- 64-bit version of the Full client (currently available as a preview version). 64-bit versions of our Host and QuickSupport clients are coming soon.
- 64-bit versions of all TeamViewer clients.
📌Note: We don't provide 32-bit versions on macOS because the operating system itself only exists in 64-bit.
How to switch TeamViewer from 32-bit to 64-bit on Windows
Currently, the 64-bit version of the Full client is available as a preview version. A public release is coming soon. This article will be updated accordingly.
To switch from the 32-bit to 64-bit version of the Full client, please follow these steps:
1) Uninstall the 32-bit version, but do not select “Remove settings” when prompted:
2) Download the 64-bit version from the TeamViewer website.
3) Install the 64-bit version by following the instructions on the screen.
4) Please do not forget to sign in again with your account if you have used one before!
📌Note: There is no automatic update from the 32-bit to 64-bit version. You can decide on your own whether you want to switch to the 64-bit version, as long as you have a 64-bit edition of Windows.
How to check if Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit
Windows 10 & 8.1: Select the Start button, then select Settings > System > About. At the right, under Device specifications, see System type.
Windows 7: Select the Start button, right-click Computer, and then select Properties. Under System, see the system type.
The 32-bit and 64-bit versions of TeamViewer use different registry paths. When switching from 32-bit to 64-bit, all existing registry settings are copied to the new path.
⚠IMPORTANT: If you are using scripts to provide specific settings for new installations, you should carefully adapt your scripts to the correct registry path:
32-bit registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\TeamViewer
64-bit registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TeamViewer
