Team Viewer ID

I searched many, many times before for a simple solution to teamviwer suspected commercial use but this is the best. No need to change mac address, simple and easy. 

On your computer:

navigate in the registry to:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\TeamViewer\

add a new D-WORD value (32 bit).
     Name of the value: MIDForceUpdate
     Value: 3 (hex/deci)

What does MID Force Update do?

MIDForceUpdate tells the Teamviewer server that the machine XYZ has the ID XXX-XXX-XXX. This entry forces every other machine with the same ID to renew it.


To prevent Sponsored Session popup go into the registry edit "windows" + "r" regedit, and go to \HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TeamViewerSession\shell\open\command and delete the data.


As it relates to getting full Premium or Corporate licence... most cracks out there don't really work. While it might show full licence, you will be prompted to change your licence from trial expired to extended trial version. This will make team viewer prompt the annoying messages. 

The best solution is where team viewer says "Licence Type - Unknown: Updated Recommended."... This removes all the annoying messages and Teamviewer continues to work perfectly.

Quite honestly, team viewer is too expensive. I use it a lot to help friends and family where I don't get paid. So why should I pay for something just cause I help lots of other people. 

I won't mind 


This is the best solution ever.
