How to install "full" Teamviewer on existing Teamviewer Host remotely?

Hello, sometimes I have to install the Full Teamviewer Software on existing Teamviewer Host. Of course the new installation says there is an existing Teamviewer running and stops. Is there any convient way to do this remotely?

Re: How to install "full" Teamviewer on existing Teamviewer Host remotely?

Hi @jakobssystems,

Yes, it's possible to remotely install the full version of TeamViewer onto a computer that already has the Host module installed!

To do this, connect to the remote computer running the Host module, and click the Files & Extras menu on the toolbar above the session window. Then click the Install button, and select "Install default TeamViewer".

I've you've already created some custom Host modules in the Management Console, you'll also see those listed under the Install button too. This allows you to install one of your custom Host modules over the top of the existing Host module that is installed on the remote computer.

On PC it might work, but not on Mac Version of Teamviewer.
