32-bit or 64-bit client

TeamViewer provides 32-bit and 64-bit versions of our desktop clients on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

You should install the version that matches the architecture of your operating system:

  • For¬†32-bit operating systems, you must install the¬†32-bit version of TeamViewer Remote
  • For¬†64-bit operating systems, we recommend installing the¬†64-bit version of TeamViewer Remote¬†- however,¬†the 32-bit version will also work on a 64-bit operating system

ūüďĆNotes:

  • It is¬†not possible to run both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of TeamViewer Remoteon the same computer. One version must be uninstalled before installing the other.
  • The¬†64-bit versions of TeamViewer Remote¬†allow for more computer memory to be used if needed. This is especially beneficial for heavy usage scenarios with several TeamViewer sessions running simultaneously, connecting to remote systems with high-resolution displays.
  • If you update from a¬†32-bit to a 64-bit¬†version your¬†TeamViewer ID will stay the same.

Available clients

TeamViewer provides the following clients for Windows, macOS, and Linux:

Windows 

  • 32-bit¬†versions¬†of all¬†TeamViewer clients

ūüďĆNote:¬†64-bit¬†versions¬†of the¬†Full version;¬†64-bit versions¬†of¬†TeamViewer Host and¬†QuickSupport¬†are coming soon.

macOS 

  • 64-bit versions¬†of all TeamViewer clients.

ūüďĆNote: We don't provide¬†32-bit versions¬†on macOS because the operating system itself only exists in 64-bit.
