Joe, not to take away from this being Greg's thread but why aren't all your computers showing up by their names? I name all mine. Easy to tell which is which in TV.

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
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

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 –
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

think TV changed the rules for eligibility.

Re: [ap-gto] Re: Remote Desktop PC access on Ad Hoc
I used the freeware version of TeamViewer for quite a while but I got tired of
it frequently reminding me that I was used my a free version and making me
reconnect. Does it still do that?

While Microsoft’s “Remote Desktop” is OK when starting out ... consider using
a free (for non-commercial users) copy of
The big advantage of the latter, besides not needing a PRO version of Windows
on each computer – is that BOTH PC screens & mice remain LIVE – you
can operate the mount or control your imaging program, from indoors or
outdoors. The outdoor PC does NOT logout and its screen doesn’t go
black, when you go indoors, and you don’t have to login again, on either side,
as you do in “MS Remote Desktop”. You can also have friends login, or login
from other computers in the house, into your outdoor remote scope
computer, to share the experience, even using their own mouse, if you let them
It is far more convenient, with added benefits like File Transfer – in both

Microsoft has always been a rather chincy, “bare bones” Remote,
and forces you to install a more expensive Windows OS. Also, you can’t operate
your scope computer for a “show-n-tell”, with that MS
version, from anywhere else, like a friend’s place, unless they also
have the PRO version installed.
