12 & 13 work fine in 18.0.4 LTS.
DO NOT USE 14 it doesn't work the random crashes will drive you crazy!

If you want to use 8 you will probably need to go back to 16.0.4. If you made a back-up before upgrading?

18 disables a ton of things Smiley Sad some things can be forced to run in 18. But most things 18.0.4 disables will run buggy when forced to run.

8 is really old. Try it with the tar.gz variant (without installation). Does it work there?

Your paid Windows is probably also too new for teamviewer 8 ;-)

@Eric_Carvalho

You can do what I have been forced into to doing after 20 or so crashes I go NUTS! 14 is JUNK!
I use Winblows in VM Smiley Sad You could just install XP in Virtual Box then run version 8 in there.
