Here is a workaround for this problem:
- Open TeamViewer's Options dialog.
- Click Advanced.
- Scroll down until you find the section about the QuickConnect button, then click Configure.
- Add dopus.exe to the list of programs which QuickConnect breaks.
- You may also want to turn off this awful QuickConnect feature entirely as it will break other software and cannot be worth it, whatever it does.
- Click OK twice.
Screenshot of the process taken from a thread about the same issue in Adobe Fireworks. Of course, you want to add dopus.exe to the list, not fireworks.exe as shown in the screenshot. The other details should be the same:
Just to reiterate, this bug is entirely TeamViewer's fault and causes problems with all the programs they list by default, and I would assume many others. To be blunt, they should remove this feature if they can't fix it, as they clearly know it is not stable and causes problems in other people's software, which other people will be blamed for. I'm rather annoyed by this.
All of these threads are about the same problem, in different software, all with the same fix:
It's ridiculous. Some of those threads are several years old. Rather than fix the fundamental problem in this aspect of their software, they either ignore reports or add new things to the blacklist while continuing to cause problems with other software, making people think something else is faulty and wasting time and spoiling other people's reputations.
In Opus 12.7.1 and 12.8 we plan to try to detect if TeamViewer is installed and automatically add ourselves to the "list of programs TeamViewer should not cause to freeze". It probably won't be perfect, but it should mean the problem stops happening for people, at least after a reboot if not immediately. But you can also do the same for yourselves now by following the steps above.
