Problem with teamviewer GUI in Debian

Debian 8, teamviewer 12 for linux, installed from .deb package.
The problem is similar as in this posts:https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Linux/Teamviewer-12-don-t-show-GUI-on-Ubuntu-16-04/td-p/4216
but the citated  solutions dont work in my case.
Teamviewer does not start any more. When I try to start teamviewer from terminal, I see

CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
XRandRWait: No value set. Using default.
XRandRWait: Started by user.
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

and no GUI apears.
There is no information in the log file.
I tried to start the TeamViewer.exe file with by wine, which is included in the package, ant this is the result:

Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger

I trtied to deinstall teamviewer, deleted all relevant directories and instaled again, but without any success.
Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
