Command on Install to start TV on Windows startup

Hi guys,

I'm hoping you can help me here, I thought this would be straight forward answer but can't seem to find it anywhere.

Is there a command when installing via SCCM (or cmd prompt) to make TeamViewer run on Windows startup. I know there is a tickbox when opening TV as admin to enable this, but would be great if you could do it on install.

Currently I'm just using the most simple of commands:

"TeamViewer_13_Setup.exe" /S

I would of thought there to be a /startup switch or something?

If there isn't a easy way to do it, I assume we can do it using the Windows 10 Startup programs folder, which isn't ideal but does offer the solution.

Thanks,

Re: Command on Install to start TV on Windows startup

Hi @KUK_Support ,

there are two possible ways to achieve this:

  1. (Recommended, but you require at least a Corporate license) use the MSI installer, because this will enable "run on Windows startup" by default. This should also provide some more benefits later on when managing your installation(s) via SCCM.
  2. (If you don't have a Corporate or Tensor license) you can also set the registry key "Autostart_GUI" (REG_DWORD) = 1 in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\TeamViewer\DefaultSettings via a script.

Hope this helps

Sven

Hello Sven, thank you for the quick reply.

We do have a corporate account, so I'll try and find the MSI installer and give that a go.

Thanks again,

Hi @Sven_F ,

So, I've managed to find the MSI package when logging into our corporate account, however it only gives the option to download v14 .MSI after customising the host client... is the v13 .MSI available anywhere?

Thanks,

Edit: Nevermind, found it after about 30 minutes of searching! It's in a totally different location, much harder than it needs to be to be able to find.. It's here is anyone else is looking for it:
