Every time I try to open TeamViewer on my Mac, I get a message about TeamViewer.ini configuration file. This happens even if I uninstall and reinstall the application. I can't even sign in to my own account from here. I have a Premium account.,
The licensing options changed for the TeamViewer Portable a bit. Now it is necessary to have the license activated on the TeamViewer account and to be signed in to that account to have licensed connections.
Before it was possible to enter the license key within the .ini-file. See: Getting Started with TeamViewer Portable
If your license is already activated on your account, we can skip that part, otherwise: please activate the license on your account via the Management Console --> Edit Profile before continue with the next step:
The popup should disappear after removing the license information from the .ini-file, please open the file in the TeamViewerPortable folder and make sure the following information are filled in:
[Settings] nosave=1 importsettings=0 LogIncomingConnections=0 LogOutgoingConnections=0 [License] code=00-00000-000000-000000
Save the file.
Please let me know whether this solves the issue for you.
I have to apologize. It looks like I did not read your post carefully enough:
The TeamViewer Portable only runs on Windows devices as it is a .exe file and is not supported for Macs.
If you are on a Windows device, you´ll see the .ini file in the same folder as the .exe:
Thanks and sorry for the hassle,
To analyze your case a bit further: Could you maybe submit a ticket to our support team and add your logfiles?
My colleagues will have a look at it to check what´s causing the message.
you can submit a ticket via this page.
Thanks for your understanding,
Have the same issue on my Mac running High Sierra. License is an Enterprise version. Tried uninstalling - also configuration files. No luck
Any solution to this?
In my case, eventually (days later!) TeamViewer support said there was a "block" on my device. They had to remove the block from their side. No amount of reinstalling and/or deleting configuration files was enough to solve the problem.
Hi TeamViewer support and @Esther ,
It appears I have this issue and there is no luck even after several delete/remove of the app and all the config files. I even downloaded and tried to run TeamViewer QuickSupport and it throws the exact same error.
Can you please check if TeamViewer had blocked my device?
This error appear because network settings are incorrect.
Check proxy setting under Teamviewer preferences.
