Installing the Host Software (Add a computer)

Each computer you want to access must be running the Host software. In a sense, the Host software safely and securely "opens the door" to a computer for a qualified remote user.

Here is how to add a computer to your account and, install the host software on that computer:

  1. Go to
  2. Log in to your account using your LogMeIn ID (email address) and password.

    Result: The Computers page is displayed.

  3. On the Computers page, click Add Computer.
    The button is disabled when you do not have sufficient computer seats. Check the number of available seats at the top of the Computers page. You must also have the Management > Deployment user permission enabled to add computers to your account.
  4. Choose an option:
    Option Description
    Add this computer To add the computer you are using, click Add this computer > Download installer. Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the host.
    Add different computer To add a computer other than the one you are using, click Add different computer > Generate link. Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the host.
    Note: A one-time link expires after 24 hours or after the first install.

Installation also includes the Client desktop app, a tool you can use to connect to your host computers.

A computer can be attached to one account at a time.
