Teamviewer license in use

I'm unable to connect to any computers in Teamviewer. I have a paid business subscription with 3 installs, 1 channel.

I get "The connection could not be established as your license is in use on another computer at this very moment. Therefore the channel of your business license is already in use.  Please wait until the other session is closed."

I have changed my password, I have signed out all "Active Logins" in Teamviewer Management, I have rebooted all 3 PCs with teamviewer, even turned them off and I still get the same message. 

When I go to and try to create a ticket, I just get a spinning wheel upon entering my email address and it never completes.

So now I'm stuck, I have this purchased software that is artificially locking me out, no support, no way to contact the company just a forum to beg for mercy.

Hi @prk1 ,

For the instance that you received the notification of "connection established at other computer",  you may check if your licensed account has been signed in on any other devices/computers. If so, kindly sign out your licensed account and exit TeamViewer client to cut off the connections.

Or you may also check for any active connections by contact TeamViewer.

Hope it helps.
