Windows 10: Teamviewer Issue Solved

    Teamviewer Issue

    I think I may have set up Teamviewer wrong on my in-laws computer. I chose the free and personal use option during the install, but every time I connect to their computer, I get a message about how customized modules are only a feature of the paid version, so I'm limited to 5 minutes at a time. Then, after 5 minutes, I'm disconnected, and I have to wait a while before I am able to connect again.

    So, what gives? I am almost certain I used the host only instructions for their system.

    Maybe you have downloaded MSI installer, which is for corporate use only, who knows.
    Within those 5 mins, download and setup portable temporarily, then reinstall TeamViewer.

    I'm currently in using my corporate account with GoToAssist. I'll remove what I have installed and try again!

    That did the trick. I'm not sure why, as I only had the Host module installed before. I verified this before the uninstall, but it is working now, so I am not going to argue with results.
