Why do I see TeamViewer trial - 'Your trial period has expired' ?

Hello all,

I hope someone will be able to help me with my current issue. When install the latest version of TeamViewer onto my desktop I get 'Your trial period has expired' and I selected the 'Non commercial use' and 'basic install' uppon installing the application.

I am usually able to start meetings and share my screen with friends for free, but I'm unable to do this.

Can someone help?

Re: Why do I see TeamViewer trial - 'Your trial period has expired' ?


The use of TeamViewer with family and friends without any financial compensation is considered private use. In cases where it says 'Your trial has expired', you might have classified your use as  'Commercial use' during the installation process. This would have started a trial, which expires after about 2 weeks. 

If you are using it for personal use, from a private home to another home, please fill out this form, and our support team can revert your device back to private.

TeamViewer shows as expired trial

A while ago TeamViewer swtiched to trial for no reason, and it expired.

I used the official form to reset my ID to personal/free usage, and several days later I received a confirmation that my ID had indeed been reset. However, nothing changed, TeamViewer still showed as an expired trial.

I used a different contact method to ask for further assistance. Never received a response.

A few days ago I used the Feedback form in TeamViewer, and received a useless automated response.

I came across advice to restart the TeamViewer service, however I use the portable version, there is no service. I even installed the standard/installable version, and it also shows as a trial version.

I don't know if the whole ID reset process is automated and if it usually works and I'm an exception, but I can't help but feel **bleep** around.

If nothing can or will be done about this, I would at least appreciate a direct answer so I can try and find alternatives.
