TeamViewer Portable is running in limited demonstration mode

I keep getting the same pop-up message on my screen every 4 seconds from Teamviewer with "TeamViewer Portable is running in limited demostration mode" 

We have a corporate license (3-channels) and I cannot even sign-in, and re-installing doesn't help.

Re: Amazing

The confusion is due to the Error message. In my case our license payment didn't go through - so this generic message came up, and it took us a while to figure this out. Only when the helpdesk checked our account we could rectify the issue.

Re: TeamViewer Portable is running in limited demonstration mode

What is Teamviewer Portable Mode, and howcome I cannot sign in, because everything else is greyed out. And also howcome uninstalling and reinstalling this app doesn't solve the problem. I have never seen/heard of Teamviewer Portable, neither was this software on my computer. Howcome I can sign into my account on a different computer. This would imply there's something wrong with the computer where I want this software to run on? 
The computer haven't had any updates or changes since I last logon to a another machine. I cannot find anything else using Google to search for similar issues.

Re: Help - Running in Limited Demonstration Mode after Updating to 14

I don't have Teamviewer 14 Portable installed. Also I cannot find this .ini file - Where is this file location, and does this apply to Teamviewer 14 normal (Desktop Version) aka (Teamviewer for Windows 10)

Amazing

So not only do you pay for the Premium and get the latest and greatest upgrade - you are unable to use the software.  I'm also have the same issue with regards to TV Remote ... and when I called the 1-800-Cry-Help hotline, I find out that the call was not during their "business hours."  This is very frustrating ... I too am unable to locate the *.ini file and if I did, my guess in add the [1] would not do the trick.  We ALL pay good money for this software - and I'm not a happy customer.  PC Anywhere?

Re: Help - Running in Limited Demonstration Mode after Updating to 14

I'm having this same issue.  My license expired and this window started popping up.  I renewed my subscription last friday and this window still doesn't go away.  Fixing this needs to be a priority.  Waiting on hold in a 20 person queue to talk to a representative to fix this problem is ridiculous.
