This page describes the process of updating a Lansweeper Cloud installation. Regular updates are recommended to ensure that you have the latest patches.
It is recommended that you update your Lansweeper installation on a regular basis, to ensure that you have the latest available patches installed and access to any new features that have been released. Updates are free to anyone with an active Lansweeper license. They are installed over your existing installation and leave your existing data and settings intact. Reinstalling is not required in order to update.
In the Installations view, select Download installers, and click Download IT installer to start downloading the latest version of the LansweeperSetup.exe file.
Alternatively, download the latest Lansweeper installer from the Lansweeper website, or by clicking Check for updates now in the Configuration > Your Lansweeper License section in Lansweeper Classic web console.
Make sure all computers hosting the scanning service have .NET Framework 4.8 or a more recent .NET version installed. This is a requirement from Lansweeper 8.2.200 onward.
When the download has been completed, place the file on the scan server that needs to be updated. Run LansweeperSetup.exe to start updating your scan server.
When you get to the screen that confirms the successful update of your Lansweeper installation, click Finish to close the installer.
If the Lansweeper service is hosted on multiple machines, which are all connected to your Lansweeper database, you will either need to run the installer on each machine hosting the service and go through the update procedure each time or use the available installer parameters to silently update the remaining scanning servers at once.
If you are scanning Windows computers with the LsPush scanning agent, copy the up-to-date LsPush to any folder referenced by your logon script, group policy or scheduled task. After your Lansweeper update, the latest LsPush executable can be found at
Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Client on your Lansweeper server.
If you are scanning non-Windows computers with the LsAgent scanning agent, update the LsAgent installations on those machines as well, as they do not auto-update. The latest LsAgent installers can be downloaded through this page.
