Checking for Lansweeper updates

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.

An overview of changes made in Lansweeper updates can be found in our changelog.

To check whether your Lansweeper installation requires updating, do the following:

  1. Browse to the following section of the web console: Configuration\Your Lansweeper License
    Your Lansweeper License menu
  2. Hit the Check for Updates now button. You could also tick Automatically check for updates once a week to perform periodic update checks. When periodic update checks are enabled and an update is available, you are notified through a popup when logging into the web console.
    Check For Updates Now
  3. Review the page on the Lansweeper website that you're redirected to. This page indicates whether your installation is up-to-date. If your installation is not up-to-date, update it by following these instructions.
    a more recent version is available
    If you are scanning your Windows computers with the LsPush scanning agent in a logon script, group policy or scheduled task, you need to manually copy the up-to-date LsPush executable to any folder referenced by your script, policy or task. This is why the update check page states that your LsPush version must be manually checked. When you update your Lansweeper installation, the latest version of the LsPush executable is automatically added to the Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Client folder on your Lansweeper server.
    If you have multiple scanning servers, your installation is not considered up-to-date until all servers have been updated to the latest Lansweeper release. If you have a lot of servers, you can silently and remotely update them by following the instructions in this knowledge base article.
