Install LastPass Software Using the Admin Console

LastPass Enterprise accounts are provided Windows and Mac installation options for local user installation or automated deployment across the organization. Additionally, LastPass admins can limit features, configure parameters, and/or enable logging when deploying the automated silent installer for Windows.

Note: Are you seeing something different? See instructions for the New Admin Console.

Please note that LastPass must be installed on each machine in order to be used. If you have a Windows server environment, then you only need to install LastPass on the servers being used. If instead your organization gives each user their own Windows or Mac operating system, then the software will need to be installed on each machine.

What is Sideloading?

According to Microsoft, the Sideload apps setting is described as, "...typically used by companies or schools that need to install custom apps on managed devices without going through the Microsoft Store, or anyone else who needs to run apps from non-Microsoft sources. In this case, it's common for the organization to enforce a policy that disables the UWP apps setting." Learn more about enabling Sideloading for LastPass.

How do I enable logging?

To enable logging during install, use /l*v -filename- parameter. For example:

msiexec /quiet /l*v log.txt /i LastPassInstaller.msi

This also works during uninstall:

msiexec /quiet /l*v log.txt /x LastPassInstaller.msi

Upon success, a similar line appears at the end of the logfile:

MSI (s) (94:C4) [16:45:06:919]: Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: LastPass.
Product Version: 4.24.0.568. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: LogMeIn. Installation success or error status: 0.

Look closely at the end of the line. Unless error status is 0, there was an error during installation. To troubleshoot, search for the error code or the word 'error' or 'exception' in the log file.
