On the second page of the wizard, the type of output package must be selected. There are templates for TeamViewer, Avast, AVG, MalwareBytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, but you can repack any type of installation using the top two options, which is explained further down this page. The templates options are basically just expanded versions of the generic EXE-to-MSI, which is the first option in the list.

The current setup file for the full version Viewer and Host must be downloaded from the front page of www. If you need to repackage the Host-only version, you can download the setup file here. Convert to MSI or not? At this point you need to decide, how to deploy TeamViewer. You have two options. One is to continue the wizard and you end up with an MSI file. The other options is to use the checkmark at the bottom.

FastTrack Automation Studio can actually deploy software without a central management system. If you tick the checkmark, the wizard will save the generated script files instead in the folder, where you have the TeamViewer setup file.

Then you can click the “Software Deploy” icon in the Home Screen and simply point to the script file instead using the “Add FSH” button shown in the screenshot below. Refer to this page for more information on automated software deployments. The best way to do that is to set up a logon script and simply include the cloud inventory option. It literally takes minutes to set up a graphical logon script to replace your old one without writing any code – it’s pure point’n’click to connect shares, printers, install an Outlook signature, etc.

Please refer to the Logon Scripts Page for more information. Be sure to tick “Take hardware and software inventory to the cloud”. This is the Logon Script Builder: You can also use the same inventory option on the General tab in the Software Deployment wizard, if you used the deployment option explained in the previous section, as shown here.

Once you have your logon script set up, the free your cloud inventory that comes with your license, will automatically include TeamViewer IDs. Including license key, password and other settings optional You can include an optional TeamViewer settings registry file.

If you do not do this, you will be using the free version. If you are repackaging the host-only version, it works the same way, except that there are fewer options. The options windows is opened by clicking the gear icon, as shown below.

Launch conditions Clicking next in the wizard will show launch conditions, which allows you to not install TeamViewer under certain conditions. This means that you can deploy the package to an entire OU or container in your Active Directory with Group Policies and avoid having it install on for example servers and virtual machines. If you used the Software Deployment Wizard option instead of MSI repackage, the last pages do not show up and you can then use the same launch conditions in the Software Deployment Wizard.

The first page lets you block on hardware and operating system. The second launch condition page lets you block based on Active Directory information: To understand how launch conditions can actually work with Group Policies, we have to look at what the wizard does. What we are doing here is using the option to the left. The MSI that wraps around the TeamViewer setup file is always installed, but it does not do anything other than register as an program in the Windows programs list, if it hits a launch condition blocking.

This is why there was also an option on the first page to use a setup MSI file inside the controller MSI, because then you can let the controller MSI always install, but only install the setup MSI on certain conditions, essentially allowing you to deploy all your software to all computers using Group Policies.

Clicking next in the wizard after launch conditions will ask you for name of the output MSI file. On success, the complete page is shown. Notice how it displays a script that you can open in the Script Editor and edit. Essentially the wizard does nothing more than compiling this script and your TeamViewer setup file an MSI file.

If you are not happy with the installation script or your need to expand it with, say licensing information, you can just open and edit the template script in the Script Editor and save it to the same folder as the TeamViewer setup file.

You are now using the third box in the drawing above, where you build your own custom MSI package. This is explain in a more detail at the bottom. Note that if you used launch conditions, you will notice that conditions were inserted at the top of the script, which is why it is a good idea to let the wizard create a template script, in case you need to extend or modify the functionality.

That’s it! If you are using a trial version of FastTrack Automation Studio, the package will only deploy to 5 computers, as this is what the trial edition allows – the rest will behave similar to launch conditions, where the setup exe is not executed.

Expanding the script If you need to modify or expand the script generated by the wizard, you must check the “Create a new script using the above template” on the last page of the wizard and save it to the same folder as your TeamViewer setup exe file. Once you have modified the script to your needs, you must use the “Compile to MSI” option in the top menu.

The MSI generation wizard will open, as shown below. Please make sure that: You check “Include additional files from my project folder inside the MSI file”. You check “Defer installation”. When you get to the page to select additional files inside the MSI file, make sure to check your TeamViewer setup exe file.

If you exported TeamViewer options, make sure you include the two reg files that the wizard created in your setup folder. If you do not wish to do that, you can collected the inventory data as part of the MSI deployment. This will however only collect the TeamViewer ID on the computers you install the MSI package on, it will obviously not work from computers, where TeamViewer is installed manually. If we go back to the wizard, there was a checkmark named SkyBox SkyBox is the cloud-based version: If you click this, inventory data is collected after installation, including the TeamViewer ID.

You are now taken to your account at SkyBox , where you can look up your computers. On the detail page of a computer, you will find the TeamViewer ID, as shown below. Then you can scan the barcode with a cell phone and get the inventory page for that server. Keeping track of TeamViewer IDs using a central XML file Another approach is to use a central XML file, which gives you the advantage to be able to make a small utility for yourself that will automatically convert an internal computer name to the TeamViewer ID and start a session.

One way to do it is to expand the MSI package script see further up and simply log it to a central file on install. You can just include the above script line anywhere in the logon script. This will give you the advantage of getting all TeamViewer IDs for all computers on the network, not only the ones repackaged by FastTrack.

Converting computer name to IDs automatically Once you have a central XML file in place, you can write a small converter script for yourself. This simple script asks you for a computer name and starts TeamViewer using the ID from the XML file and it assumes that the remote password for all computers is “”. You can leave out the last parameter with the password to have TeamViewer ask for password instead.
