Support Teamviewer portable version

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,

I prefer not to instal teamviewer but use the portable version (portableapps.com/apps/utilities/teamviewer_portable).
The problem is that RDM is using Teamviewer.exe and the portable version is TeamviewerPortable.exe and it would not work...

It seems like a very small change to be able to pick the exe name...

Thanks

Hi,
We already have this supported for some other types. I will add TeamViewer to this list.

Hello,

Sorry for the wait. There will be an "override default executable" option when choosing the installation path, so you can override the name of the .exe (and the path, too).
You can always access this in File -> Options -> Path -> Configure installation paths -> Teamviewer

The change will be available in an upcoming version.

FYI, I just installed Free version 1.0.7.0 and TeamViewer did not work with the default settings. I had to select "Override default executable" and enter "TeamViewer.exe" as the override (I think this should have been the default) to make it work.

I will verify but you're right that it should be the default.

Hi,
We can't reproduce it. What error do you get when you uncheck override default executable?

I get no feedback at all. I double-click on a session or right-click and select "Open Session" and absolutely nothing happens. If I go back and add "Teamviewer.exe" as the override, the same session works fine.

Hello,

You're right, there was a problem with certain executable overrides. The fix is made and should be available in an upcoming version. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I have updated the binaries of the version 1.0.7.0 with the hot fix.
