IMPORTANT – This installer is for a beta version of Lansweeper. We highly recommend that you install this Lansweeper version on a separate test server, as beta releases may still contain bugs. Do not use this installer to update a production installation of Lansweeper.

8.0.20.10 – 175 MB

What's New?

The Lansweeper team is focusing their efforts on what we have always been best at, discovering your network. Our priority is to scan more assets and to find more information about them. We’re also streamlining the Lansweeper installation process, especially for large environments.

Asset-Radar-Icon

Asset Radar

A new scanning option under the Scanning menu that listens for assets within network traffic. Asset Radar is particularly useful for discovering assets that are only briefly present in your network.

MIB-Browser-Icon

MIB Browser

A tool under the Scanning menu that allows you to import MIB files for custom SNMP OID scanning.

Silent-Install-Icon

Silent Install

Silent install, uninstall and update support for the Lansweeper installer. Parameters can be passed directly in your CMD command or using an INI file.
