Teamviewer for Windows / Re: Can this be done?
« Last post by Admin on November 28, 2020, 03:54:39 PM »
All I'm finding is using Windows remote desktop, it seems if you upgraded each to windows 10 its doable:
Since Windows 7 is no longer supported it says windows 10 but steps may work with windows 7.

Additionally, this article form parkland college indicates both W7/10

I haven't looked into it deeply but it may be worth checking.

I know you don't want it on the internet, not sure if that is a privacy issue or logistics of getting internet...
if its internet availability you could create a hotspot on a phone or tablet device that each computer connects to and use Teamviewer.

Teamviewer for Windows / Can this be done?
« Last post by Greg_M on November 01, 2020, 03:13:11 PM »
I have an observatory with a telescope in it.
I need to run all the equipment in the observatory with the computer.
About 75' away is a small shack we call "the warm room".
 What I want to do is hook both computers together with a single LAN cable.
I do not want this on the internet.
I want to sit at the computer in the warm room and run the computer in the observatory just as though I am sitting at the computer in the observatory with no internet involved.
I want to see on the monitor in the warm room, what is going on with the computer in the observatory.
I want to use the mouse in the warm room to click on stuff on the computer in the observatory.
I also want to use the keyboard in the warm room in the same fashion.

I have been trying to figure this out all day and have Teamviewer installed on both Win7 Pro computers, on the dining room table.
I have the controller computer hooked to the observatory computer through a switch.
Can I not use a switch or router?
So far it's not working.

Will/can this work like I want it to?

Teamviewer for Windows / Re: Help --- "Trusted" Device Email not returned to me

Disregard previous ... all of a sudden eight (yes, 8) "Trust this Device" Emails showed up at once in Outlook. Why this happened, however, is a question I would like to ask either TeamViewer or Gmail?

Teamviewer for Windows / Help --- "Trusted" Device Email not returned to me
« Last post by Coover on September 03, 2020, 12:26:26 PM »
I recently purchased two "new to me" computers and deleted the two they replaced from my account and I am trying to assign them to my account. After loging in and giving them my password, Team Viewer says they will send an email for me to verify that I am who I am and the machine(s) is/are "trusted". I never receive the email. I check my Junk E-mail folder, I check my "Spam" folder, i check my "Trash' folder, and of coure, I check my "Inbox" ... nothing there from Team Viewer. Since I am using Outlook, an email client which is part of Office 2019, I also go to the gmail website and sign in there just in case, for whatever reason, the email was not transferred. I DO NOT FIND THE EMAIL. I try to go to TeamViewer support, and they ask me to login. i do and they tell me they will send me an email. I do not get that email. I can't contact anybody ... except for members of this forum.

What do I need to do now?

After full logout, someone will be able to access your PC, unless you accept it.

Have you got an answer to this, if you please share this problem, I want to solve this problem.
7
Background:

1. I have TeamViewer installed on several Windows PCs (of family, friends, current and former coworkers) that I figured I might need remote access to some day.
2. Most of these installs have older versions of TeamViewer that are now deprecated.
3. The time has come that I now need to support several of these PCs.
4. I now learn that TeamViewer has completely disabled all functionality with these older versions of Teamviewer.
5. The remote users DO NOT have administrative access to their computers.
6. I DO have the administrative credentials to these computers.
7. I DO NOT want to give the remote users administrative access.
8. These PCs are in remote locations that I WILL NOT HAVE PHYSICAL ACCESS TO any time soon.
9. In the old days of Teamviewer, there used to be a method where you could update a remote install of Teamviewer by supplying the administrative credentials, and then letting Teamviewer essentially perform an unattended in-place upgrade.  For some inexplicable reason, Teamviewer seems to have disabled even this functionality.
10. I can get the remote user to download and run the latest Teamviewer under their limited user account, and I can successfully connect, but then any time an administrative task is required, I cannot see the Windows UAC window asking for administrative credentials.  This is expected behavior as Teamviewer is not running as a program with administrative access.
11. Even if I could somehow see the UAC prompt, how could I upgrade the old version of Teamviewer (in Program Files) while the new version of Teamviewer is running under the limited user's profile?  The Teamviewer install program seems to detect whether a Teamviewer instance is already running, and won't let you install while Teamviewer is running.  I suppose the answer to this is to temporarily setup another remote access program under the local user account, but then I still have the UAC issue.

Question:

Is there any method that anyone has discovered to update a deprecated Teamviewer version on a remote computer for which I have the admin credentials?  Can I start a full unattended update from the command prompt, perhaps, supplying the necessary administrative credentials ahead of time?

Teamviewer for Windows / Re: How to Surpress Popup Message on Remote Computer

I help my 95 years old father. He never touch his computer. We have a script to make the computer auto answer when we call. But he always say, there is a square over your face.

How to avoid it...

Like you said, it is ok on my side, but not on the other side.

Hi guys, Sorry for my newbie question but I did not know anything about Teamviewer, until today, I had to give a guy at work the access to my PC to help me to set up something. I am kinda worried now. I deleted Teamviewer immediately after everything was done. I wonder if he can still access my PC? Help please, Thank you.
