TeamViewer Host MSI download requires an account with TeamViewer.  FileWave includes the MSI within the Fileset, but this should not be exported and redistributed.  FileWave will aim to update the Fileset periodically to include newer versions of TeamViewer.

Embedded TeamViewer version:

↓ Windows



Disassociation of the Fileset will uninstall TeamViewer Host with an pre-uninstallation script.


The Fileset provided has an example 'tvopt' file, which will customise the installation if left as is.  If no customisation is desired this file may be removed.  Alternatively, it is possible to upload an alternate 'tvpopt; file, preset as desired.

Example file 'example.custom.tvopt' highlighted in image.  Add a built file into the same directory called 'custom.tvopt' to override this; the 'example.custom.tvopt' may be left behind or removed.
