Installing TeamViewer (Greatest App Ever)

Posted: August 20, 2010 in Informative

TeamViewer is a utility that allows you to share your desktop (and control of your computer) with a remote user. My current purpose for using this to help members have uses with installing my custom Full Tilt tables, but this could be used to assist with just about anything that can be handled in a “live support” kind of environment.

If I ask you to install this so I can help you, we wil also agree on a time to meet (most likely in a railbirds chat room.)


To install TeamViewer (click this link).

You should now be at his location.

You should now click the link that says “TeamViewer v3.0”. Note the version number may well be different as there are new releases of the program.

Some of the specifics of this may vary as you may have different security systems on your system. I will show you how to intalled this and you should be able to modify this to install on your system. This is no different than installing any other program.

Click RUN. Do not click SAVE.

Click RUN.

You should be in the windows installer now. Click NEXT.

Agree to the liscence agreement by click the radio button next to “I agree…” and then clicking NEXT.


Now there are 2 different ways to do this. In one you do not install the actual program on your computer. If you want to install the program because you plan on using it frequently, following these instructions. If you think this may well be the only time you use the program, then skip down to the START WITHOUT INSTALLING INSTRUCTIONS.

Next step: do NOT start this automatically if you donot want to use it via I-Phone and do not enter a password. One of the more secure features of this program is that it automatically generates codes and passwords for each session. Let it do that and keep things very secure.       (But if you want to Use it via I-phone\Android Phone or Windows P.D.A Please check this Feature)

click NEXT

If you don’t want this is the default folder, then tell it where to install. I just stayed with the default folder.

Click NEXT.

If you want to add this to an existing Start Menu Folder tell it which one. I just left it to the default.

Click Install.

Click FINISH.

The program should launch. It will give you 2 pieces of infromation I will need to connect to your computer. You will need to arrange a time to meet me and I will ask you for your ID and PASSWORD. They are circled below.


START WITHOUT INSTALLING

Use this method if you think you will rarely use the program.

Click the radio button next to “Start without installion”

Click NEXT.

The program should launch. It will give you 2 pieces of infromation I will need to connect to your computer. You will need to arrange a time to meet me and I will ask you for your ID and PASSWORD. They are circled below.
