Remove the "sponsored Session" popup
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:34:51 PM »
Hello all,

I am using TeamViewer as a remote control for my computer.  I have my desktop hooked up to my Tv.  I am then using my laptop to control my desktop.

My question is: Once I get a TV show playing on my desktop in full screen mode I would like to log out of Teamviewer,  Whenever I log out though a pop up comes up on my desktop titled "Sponsored Session".  Is there anyway of not having this window popup?

Many Thanks,
Kaspr

ive had that same question and haven't found a solution. My immediate reaction to your situation is to just leave it logged on while the show is running, only log off when you are finished.

The problem is that when I am watching shows streamed form network sites it goes a bit choppy.  Normal avi files play fine, just the streamed stuff.

If you find a solution, please let us know.

any updates on this issue?  I have a program running and the pop-up stops it from working  :-\

I would really like the pop-up to go away

cool  let us know what you hear!  Even if they can change it to popup and then go away after 30 seconds or have the option to check a box to keep it away after you have seen it once.

Hello kaspr007, ERS and Bass_Fisherman,

Thanks for your messages! Unfortunately at the moment there is no solution for you; the popup window shows up at the end of every free TeamViewer session. However I forwarded your request (remove windows after 30 seconds) to our development department. For the reason that we could not differentiate betweeen the usage of TeamViewer, it would be no option for us to integrate a check box to only show the 'sponsored session' dialog once. I would be glad if you'll follow us on twitter or facebook, to be informed when new features and versions will be released.

If you have any further questions or require further information please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Best regards
Ben

You can avoid this window by running following AutoIt3 script:
Code: [Select]
Local $tvHandle = 0
while True
$tvHandle = WinWaitActive("Sponsored session")
if Not ($tvHandle = 0) Then
Send("{Enter}")
EndIf
WEnd
Or just run compiled AutoIt3 script:

We do not know if this is legitimate.
Some further investigation is in order, we will try to find out if in deed this does/can work.  We would suggest that anyone be extremely careful running any type of 3rd party script that modifies your registry.
That said, it looks pretty harmless.
We will be unable to test this for a number of days.
Will try early in the following week and report back.

I was looking for solution of this problem, too. Using search engine, I found this thread on this forum. There was no solution here. Therefore I decided to provide mine, so I needed to make an account on this forum.
I use Teamviewer to connect to my home computer. That computer runs automation script, which emulates mouse clicks in active window using AutoIt3 script.
When I disconnect from my home computer via Teamviewer, "Sponsored session" Teamviewer's nag screen becomes active window. Because it's a nag screen, it appears as a topmost window and forces itself to become active window. My automation script gets broken at this point and I need a solution.
Using AutoIt3, I created a script (which is compiled in a background application). This script runs in a system tray near clocks and waits for Teamviewer nag screen window to become active. When this happens, script emulates pressing of keyboard's "Enter" key. This makes nag screen to go away as if real user has pressed "OK" button.
As for compiled script (.exe application): I myself wouldn't run any exe which is not made (or approved) by a well-known and respectable member of this forum. That's why I provided the AutoIt3 script source code which you can compile by yourself. Just google "AutoIt3", install and compile exe-file by yourself.
I hope this will be useful for you. Thanks for attention.

Thanks for the clarification on the script and how it works/what it does. 
We haven't yet tested it, it seems pretty straight forward, we did look up AutoIt3 and found the site for anyone who wants more information:

http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/
specifically the forum may be of more help:
http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/

Would suggest that anyone who is leery do just as izogfif suggested and download autoit3 and compile the code themselves.
Thanks for the contribution

yes it works with  AutoIt3.
Made x86 and x64 .exe files, also added custom icon to the exe.  Check deviantart.com
