Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to set up Teamviewer quick support with a permanent access feature like the full program. The reason for this is I use this for remote support and would prefer a fixed ID and password.

Thanks for any responses

No. ID is always the same but password changes.
Permanent access is always lost after reboot as it is not running as a service.

I'm not sure if this will give you this feature, but when installing teamviewer on the client PC, you can choose whether you want it to start as a service or not. I think if you install it with that option you won't always have to ask the person at the other end for the login options.

If that doesn't act that way, then I suggest using logmein instead which also has a free version for private use, and there you don't need to use different logins everytime.

Thanks for the quick responses. I will try installing as a service and if that fails I will use letmein instead.

TV quick support will not run as a service - only the full version.

Actually it does work with the free version. I've just tested it. When you install teamviewer it asks you whether you want it to start automatically when the PC starts, and if you select that option you can input the password you want to use twice. After that you can use that password whenever you connect to it. Once installed, it shows you the ID which of course you'll have to write down as it is something that isn't easily remembered.

Rindi: Your're right - for the free version. But Quick Support is a special on (just one tiny EXE).
