Hello Experts,

I need help for the deployment of Teamviewer on all the domain computers using GPO or any reliable method.

My basic requirements-

- All pc's having same team viewer password
- Remote control ID will be in the form of IP address.

Please provide step by step guide to achieve this task.

Looks like someone already did a walkthrough on this. Please see attached file, not sure who the author(s) are.

If you want the same password and have the it only work on LAN (making the IP the remote control ID) then you have to mess with the configuration file and registry somehow. Sorry, but I dont think Teamviewer has much info on that side of things. But, the one thing you can do is create a custom module on their website which would allow you to set that password and local LAN access from the get-go on the exe.

Have you downloaded the msi? You need to have a corporate account to get access to this. It's not available on the lower tiers of subscription.
That's for deploying the program. As for unattended access you essentially set up one pc the way you want with password etc and use the "export to a reg file" in options.
Then in your users logon script you run regedit /s /f your-reg-file.regardless
I put the reg file in the same directory as the msi.

What's your environment?
You can't get a free version of the msi so you'll have to install on all your computer's manually. If this is an issue convince your boss to buy the corporate license or look at another piece of software.
but you will be able to use the reg patch domain wide without issue

to silently install, run

msiexec.exe /i "\\domain\folders\TeamViewer_Host.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /q /norestart

Please have a look at the first post in this thread http:#a39781390. The attached PDF has step by step instructions for deploying the msi and how to obtain the reg file. Just be sure to make note of the fact for both 32 and 64 bit systems as they'll require different reg files.
You don't need to do as limjianan has said. It will be a silent install if pushed through GPO.

You can't. You need to login using the license code they give you.
How many pcs are we talking here?

And your company doesn't have the money to pay for it?
You should read the licence terms for use of the software as it's free only for personal use

Its not about the money.

We want to test it first prior the deployment.

So install it on five or six computers and test it. You don't need the msi for that.

I have First hand experience that the msi and reg setup detailed in the attached pdf above work and work well in a domain environment.
Test the software but the deployment is straight forward

Otherwise look at some alternatives

The issue is teamviewer keeps track of your usage and connections. They'll just end up blocking you as has happened to me in the past
If you don't have the right license with them.

Just an alternate suggestion.

Would Windows Remote Assistance work for you?  It's already built into to Windows.  http://www.ehow.com/how_5962990_do-up-use-remote-support_.html

http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles-tutorials/windows-xp/wxprmass.html

I have set up port forwarding for myself to access work systems remotely and used the built-in tools more frequently.  It's a little more work initially, but saves the company money, especially when they don't want to spend it.  Some places I've worked with previously, especially the heavily unix centric ones, have also had TeamViewer banned as a security measure.  I've had to work around it or do without.

put it this way, teamviewer has a 7 days money back guarantee program.
ask them for one and within 7 days, you should sort out your work.

Ok. Which license I should go for ?
I need to deploy on around 800-900 computers. The clients will have only support version and can't take control
and we around 20 administrators.

Let's go for Corporate licence.

so this is how the deal. it is on how many active concurrent administrator you need to support.

you can always start with 3 administrators and if you need more concurrent administrators, just pay the addon.

Hi,

I have got a trial corporate license and that enabled me to download msi package.

I have deployed team viewer on test pc's using GPO with customized settings. Its working fine.

And it will until the Trial runs out. When you set up the msi, it will deploy with that license.

When the trial runs out you'll be prompted to upgrade. Been there done that. There was a grace period or warning when it was close to expiry but you'll be forced to buy it outright or uninstall it

Changing the date won't trigger it :-). They have a record of when your trial started and will notify you accordingly. Remember all your clients are connected to their server at all times and you connect to your clients through their server (direct ip connections are possible but the default is via their server)
