Re: teamviewer 13 on win10: installation fails and crashes

Hello Phill,

can you please tell me if there is any specific error the installation fails with? Maybe you have been able to grab a screenshot when it fails?

What you can try is the following:

- unistall TeamViewer v12  and delete all options via "remove settings" in the uninstall wizard (try via Control Panel -> Programs and Features)

- delete the old TeamViewer folder if still existant (usually to be found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\TeamViewer)

- reboot the system

- try to install again

If this should fail again, please grab a screenshot and the error message and post that here.

Best regards,
