Deploy upgrade of Teamviewer Host - upgrade of replace previous version

We have deployed Teamviewer 10 host via GPO.
We want to upgrade to version 12.

To modify the GPO, which option do I choose:
- Uninstall the existing package, then install the upgrade Package
or
- Package can upgrade over the existing package

Re: Deploy upgrade of Teamviewer Host - upgrade of replace previous version

Always test, test, test!

But I believe you can install over the existing version, as long as it's the same type.

  • Upgrade host with host = OK
  • Upgrade full with full = OK
  • upgrade full with host = I think this is bad.

Re: Deploy upgrade of Teamviewer Host - upgrade of replace previous version

Yeah, check page 3 of the MSI Manual. Should be in the zip file that contains the msi download.

To install TeamViewer MSI, follow these steps:
1. Choose the package you want to install (TeamViewer.msi or TeamViewer_Host.msi)
2. If you have already deployed a TeamViewer MSI version before, you can simply install the newer Version. The older version will be replaced automatically, even if it's a lower major
version (4.x or higher supported). However, you have to make sure that TeamViewer
(full version) and TeamViewer Host won’t get mixed. If you want to change the
TeamViewer variant, you should uninstall the existing one first.
