Re: Teamviewer initializing display parameters and hangs Version 12.0.72365

I did not have a driver installed so there was nothing to uninstall.

Also I am running 12.0.72365 and still having the problem.

Hi cybdiver,

please check your host in the task bar. Right-click on the icon and go to options. Then have a look to the account button. Is the host assigned to your account? If not, click on the button and enter your account with credentials. Then your teamviewer work fine

Do not install TeamViewer by RDP, do it physically on the PC, you will have a completely different TV ID

What if it's a VM? in the cloud?  There is no physical machine.

There is no access via KVM to this VM?

When I log in to affected computer I was unable to connect, there is stuck Desktop Windows Manager (dwm.exe) and I have to restart it through taskmanager.

Every time it is similar, on computer I tried to connect and fail taskbar is not responding and i have black background (got image). After forceclosing DWM, background comes back.

Using Windows 10 last build, got Eset Antivirus. Happaned on two different computers same way.

I also go this to work by opening TeamViewer Host on my target machines, clicking on the little lightbulb next to 'Your ID' and using the secondary ID number listed for 'administrative purposes'. This does not use the already logged on session (on the target machine) but I'm assuming starts it's own, negating the resolution issues of an already logged in session...

I restarted TV on my host machine and it worked for several days.   This morning it's showing the same issue.

Same issue on 12.0.72365.

First logon succeeded, but screen got stuck after a couple of seconds. I tried reconnecting, but now it get's stuck like all the other people here.

Will have to wait till tomorrow to see if a restart fixes this.

Same here, on 12.0.72365

Works fine most of the time but when explorer crashes, Teamviewer can't connect at all until I go on the remote desktop and restart explorer

I don't think I'd mark this thread solved or my post as a solution.. it was just something I noticed.

The problem appears to be that Teamviewer may be contributing or causing explorer to crash and if you don't get a chance to restart explorer manually on the remote desktop; then you're SoL until you get to it.

In my case, explorer wasn't crashed. I just restarted TV.  Same credentials etc. so it's not that either.  I have my system (Windows 10) set to not sleep or hibernate but I have the impression that something is still going on with that or wake on lan or something similar..

Really wish there were some restart option that did not require my to log in to TeamViewer.system is frozen but it shows on the list of computers. clearly not completely frozen but when I try to connect I get the initializing display but nothing from there.

Teamviewer only connects when a monitor is attached and display is on, so to say screensaver or power save are the cause. As soon one uses the system, it wakes up, and so the display, and teamviewer does work again.
