I am looking for some clarification regarding LsAgent Auto-Update. Within Lansweeper Classic, within Groups, there is a flag for Auto-Update. I have been unable to identify what this means though I have an assumption. When LsAgent is installed on a machine, you then have the option to enable this flag, which will then automatically update the LsAgent itself, when available. The Descriptors and Titles of the flag are misleading in my opinion as they state "Keep Windows assets automatically up to date" and "Enable Auto-Update for Windows clients". This leads me to believe that LsAgent can leverage Windows Updates itself, though with my limited experience of the Platform, I do not believe that to be the case.

I've tried digging through documentation but have exhausted my efforts and would appreciate feedback.

Hello there!

LsAgent cannot install Windows updates. To deploy Windows updates, you can look into our deployment module: https://community.lansweeper.com/t5/deploying-software-other-changes/tkb-p/kb_deploying-software-and...

The auto-update feature for LsAgent just keeps the LsAgent software up to date on your Windows clients.

Hello.  This statement is lacking accuracy.

 Within Lansweeper Classic, within Groups, there is a flag for Auto-Update. 


Should read Within Lansweeper Classic, click Scanning, then click LsAgent scanning.  There is no "groups" until you get this far down into the configuration menus, where you then find "LsAgent Groups Configuration".
