How to change TeamViewer ID after cloning
There are many tutorials on the internet that shows how to change a Teamviewer ID after cloning a VM but i found no instruction that shows me how to keep the ID on the original machine and change the ID on the new VM – without deleting any registry keys.
I got this Solution from the Teamviewer Support! 1. At the VM you want to keep the ID
- navigate in the registry to:
Name of the value: MIDForceUpdate Value: 3 (hex/deci) 2. At the VM you want to change the ID
- add a new D-WORD value (32 bit).
Only if Teamviewer was executed and/or installed follow these steps:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\TeamViewer\VersionX Delete the VersionX (e.g. Version7) folder.
- stop Teamviewer(!)
- navigate to:
- restart the computer
- start Teamviewer – now Teamviewer should renew the ID
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.
