I too signed up in these forums specifically looking for a way to get rid of the icon in the dock.

LogMeIn doesn't do this.
Dropbox doesn't do this.
Adobe Creative Cloud doesn't do this.
LastPass doesn't do this.
many others do not do this

There is no valid reason for TeamViewer to appear in both the System Tray (above) and in the Dock

This needs to be fixed and it is amazing that this has been a noted bug for years!
Teamviewer for Windows / strange bug
« Last post by francis.harris3 on October 15, 2017, 09:01:44 AM »
I have one remote computer that keeps giving me this stupid screen:

The only way I can connect is via remote desktop connection but this isn't convenient at all.

Any ideas anyone? Many thanks
Teamviewer for Windows / Install Teamviewer for a single account

Can Teamviewer 12 be installed for just one account?  Windows 10

Setting up a new machine for a friend, and there will be 2 users with passwords.

My friend is one user on the computer, and is computer literate.  As for the other user, a candy bar is more literate than he is.  We do not want him to see Teamviewer in all the normal places, such as the Start Menu.

So we want to try to "hide" it from him as much as possible to keep him from getting into trouble.

Teamviewer for Mac/iPad/iPhone / Apple Pencil Support and iPad Pro resolution
« Last post by Pewit on October 10, 2017, 07:59:21 PM »
I’m using an iPad Pro with the 12.9” screen in Landscape format (I also use a Logitech keyboard with it) to remotely access my Windows 7 desktop with a wide screen which I can view best at native 1920x1080 resolution (rather than the best fit which Team Viewer defaults to).

1. Is it possible to set up parameters for this connection so it doesn’t keep defaulting to the best fit display?

2. I also have an Apple Pencil which is really good for selecting small scrollbars etc at this resolution but if I tap with the Pencil there is no remote reaction. Could Team Viewer support the Apple Pencil input?
Teamviewer for Linux / Help Installing TeamViewer 12 in debian 9 linux

Newbie here.  I'm trying to install teamview 12 in my debian 9 linux on an old laptop. 
I downloaded the package teamview_12xxx_i386.deb

I did (as root):
Code: [Select]
apt install ./teamview_12xxx_i386.deb
Here are the errors:

Suggestions / Re: Add "LAN" conenctions to contact list
« Last post by micsak on September 30, 2017, 11:08:47 AM »
I agree with you but there is another feature in Teamviewer (I'm using 11) which is enough convenient.

Go to button with add contact and click on the arrow to see available options. The last option is "Nearby contacts and devices"
Wait for few seconds and you will see available devices in the LAN.
Click on the arrow of device you like and click the option you want: Remote control using password or the others

Catch all / Re: Converting .tvs to another format?
« Last post by Felinebalc on September 29, 2017, 11:44:31 PM »
Forgive me to bother you guys but this is the only thread i find about video conversion and i just have a related problem. May I post it here to look for an answer.  Did you ever know the output format - FBR? because recently i used a screen capture program named BB Flashback, also to record HD quality videos. However, the output generated by this application was. FBR. I couldn't play it in VLC and Windows Media Player. Later I found this article ( and it said that i have to convert FBR to mp4 format. I only want to know whether conversion is the only possible method to solve this issue since i know that video compression always causes some kind of quality loss (the original video is 720P 60 Fps) and whether there is an alternative way such as changing .extension or using another better video player?

Teamviewer for Windows / DNS lookup error
« Last post by bbaker on September 26, 2017, 11:48:17 AM »
I am running a Win7 64 bit PC and trying to connect to a vendor with a license to TeamViewer so they can remote access my PC to conduct a software upgrade.  I am also at both a government and educational institution which is complicating the issue.

My PC does not normally have any internet access and sits on a private network. The PC has no virus protection and is essentially a very bare lab machine that only runs vendor software.  I have connected a USB WiFi antennae temporarily to the PC for the sole purpose of connecting to the vendor for a software update.  The WiFi works fine and can connect to our guest WiFi account (with only browser login security) or my phone as a mobile hotspot.

My PC does have internet access through the guest WiFi account at our location.  The vendor has given me an executable that tries to connect to TeamViewr and will produce a ID and password on my end that I think then allows the vendor to access my PC.  Nothing I am doing has any sensitivity.  I am just trying to work through our draconian IT policies.

I have talked to my IT Department and they believe the problem is DNS related.  My connection is setup for DHCP and our domain has an internal DNS lookup table rather than an external DNS lookup table (this part is beyond me but is what my trusted IT guys are saying).  When I run the executable I get "Not ready.  Pleae check your connection". 

It is definitely not a proxy issue as we use no proxy but what we believe is happening is TeamViewer is trying to look up my DNS and does not get a valid DNS since my DNS is internal.  I believe this is true because if I setup my phone as a WiFi hotspot (using my cell service) the executable runs fine because my phone is giving an internet based DNS based on my cell phone.  One solution is take the PC home and use my home network and that is actually a possibility but the PC is not easy to move and there are some complications.

Although it may sound like it, nothing here is illegal, proprietary, or classified.  I am just forced to work with extreme IT rules at times even when using my institution's "guest" network. 

I found an article that had some edits to my hosts file that looked promising but it still did not work.

Any ideas??
