Re: Remote Desktop PC access on Ad Hoc Network

I didn't know there were two kinds of install. I did a fresh install. I was installing on a brand new computer. Looks like I've got some experiments to try. I'll totally remove the program then either install 12 followed by an upgrade to 13 or a fresh 13 this time looking for that two kinds of install option. Thanks for info. I'll give it a try tomorrow and tell you guys what happened.

Perhaps you answered the INSTALLER with some non-control option – or what ever the alternate was. I forget what it was, but there were TWO kinds of user install.
Yes – I did a File Transfer, the same old way I have for years, this afternoon – and I double checked – I am now running version 13.1.1548 build Mar 9, 2018.
The File Transfer, and all the other command menu bar options are EXACTLY the same as they always were, including File Transfer and Remote Print – and I assume Clipboard still works as it used to do.
I too was surprised by the “slightly new” GUI screen – I didn’t use their new fangled advanced one, offered as a beta test option back in version 12. I like this simpler, old one.
Only one thing would improve it – a NAME tag beside its remembered list connect ID numbers. Hard to distinguish between helped family and friends’ 9-digit numbers.
So, there is something different in your own install of version 13.
Mind you, I didn’t install version 13 ... all over again. It updated itself at some point, when I wasn’t looking. So, my old install is NOT a “fresh” install. Maybe that is where they changed things.
Greg - Did you perhaps install version 13 from scratch, that got you in the current mess ?
Maybe download and re-install, or install version 12 and click the CHECK for new Version button in HELP, rather than a fresh download/install. That’s in case there is a inconsistency between Installer, and Updater. It really is worthwhile pursuing.
Good luck Greg. Just curious – hope your situation isn’t something new at TV.
No, as far as I know disconnect is not one of the problems with version 13. Of course as soon as I found fie transfers weren't supported yet I dropped it and went back to version 12 so I don't have a lot of experience with it. I then went on the web and found a lot of people went back to 12 because of missing functions such as file transfer, remote print and clipboard transfer. If your using such functions then I can't understand what's going on. The look and feel is totally different than version 12. The basic stuff seemed to work just fine but if the missing functions are hidden somewhere I didn't see where. Are you sure your on version 13?
Is this disconnect something new in version 13?
Like you, I used TV for probably 10 years, hassle free. Used version 13 today, for most of the afternoon, never got disconnected, no warnings, just a “polite Thank You” for using TeamViewer .... AFTER I logged out.
It didn’t disconnect me in the 4 hours I was using it, so I don’t know why you are having a problem. That’s weird. Did you somehow download a trial “commercial user” version”. I think TV Corp is pretty wary and checks if you are suspected of using it for business. Don’t know what they may “snoop” for, in the transactions – if they actually do that. Perhaps there are “terms of service” that you acknowledge their right to do that – probably.
I have heard of cases where so-called “home users” got caught and cancelled.
Anyway, so far, the latest TV version is behaving no different from years of the older ones.
I would curious what you or anyone else discovers about your TV situation. I don’t think TV changed the rules for eligibility.
