How to deploy teamviewer ?



  • Hi,
    I’ve made a fog server few weeks ago in my company. I have to find a method to deploy teamviewer on the existing computers. We have a business license, that doesn’t give access to the MSI version. Does anyone here have deploy Teamviewer in .exe format with fog ? It seems there is no silent installation parameter with the .exe installer.

    @Ric41 I believe when you download Teamviewer for installation, it gives you the opportunity to setup what they call an “unattended” mode.

    This, however, is beyong the scope of FOG and probably should not be discussed on these forums.



  • Hi,
    Thanks, but i’ll use the .exe, the install is okay with it. Do u know a mean to automatically associate the teamviewer deployment to our teamviewer account ? The goal is to have access directly to all the pc without asking the password or host id. The account address is stored in the registry, but i think it will have a problem with the account password.



  • Hi,

    you will only get tv msi if your are corporate user, if you don’t have a corporate license you can do it like that:
    Setup Teamviewer the way you like it, export the settings in options. Then…

    reg import "%cd%\Standard.reg"
    "%CD%\TeamViewer.exe" /MSI /S
    

    This is what i used before we had the corporate license :)
    I’ve used SFXMaker to make a exe package to use as a snapin.

    i can give u the current msi file if you like, they don’t embed the license in the installier so i can give it to you without any harm :), FYI the normal exe installer contains the msi ;)

    Latest Teamviewer 12 msi in english language:
    REMOVED FOR SECURITY REASONS, talk to me if you need the file in chat.

    Something else, the tv msi is not a real msi, it’s just wrapped around the exe installer. i don’t know why they won’t use a real msi and give corporate a chance the get a license embedded installer, maybe because they are afraid that installers are may shared :D

    The /S is okay, thanks a lot (without any window at the end). i regret that its not documented by teamviewer

    They have no reason to help you deploy the non-enterprise version. Probably as soon as they learn the word is out, they will change the arguments.

    You are right I was looking at their site and the only way I see that you can deploy and retain settings is if your corporation has a professional license with Teamviewer, or if you are one bad jama with programming of course.

    @Wayne-Workman /S is standard and has been around in teamviewer for awhile (at least starting in the early 201X’s). The reason it’s /S is because Teamviewer uses NSIS to package their installers (which a simple hexdump of the installer’s manifest would reveal), and NSIS uses /S as a convention.

    @Ric41 teamviewer usually will take TeamViewer.exe /S as a valid parameter (note that it is capital S). However teamviewer likes to start itself after being installed, so you would probably have to get the PID of the spawned process and kill it after the installer finishes.

    @Ric41 so i take it you are trying to deploy teamviewer with all its settings for your corporation in tact right?

    If so i seen something on this matter ill post the link once i get home . i know it has somerhing to do with packaging the file and your companys details in a msi yourself and deploying it

    If you have a mean to deploy also parameters and the company account, it’s great :)

    Maybe?

    I don’t know it, i’ll considere and try it.

    @Wayne-Workman said in How to deploy teamviewer ?:

    Does it not work if you just install it on the reference image? I don’t know because I’ve never tried.

    As i told, it’s for the already in use pcs, not the next.
