Problem with updating Team Viewer

I'm using a windows 10 PC. Trying to update Team viewer. I click on the pop-up that says " A new version is available...". It asks for a confirmation and finally it says " Team viewer will now close and install... "- after that it asks for an administrative username, password and domain.

I don't know what to type there. I tried typing my windows administrator and password, my team viewer accounts username and password, nothing works!

Hi  DenvinLawrence

Thanks for posting.

It is definitely the Windows admin username and password that is required.
However, if you are on a domain, it needs to be formated like
Username: DOMAIN\username
Password: PASSWORD

I hope this helps.

Re: Problem with updating Team Viewer

Ordinarily, in order to update a program I need to use my husband's Windows admin username and password in the admin/pw box provided. (I don't have a separate one, myself.)  This time that doesn't work.  What else can I try?
