Software Update: Lansweeper 10.2.0.0

To map the devices in your network, you can use Lansweeper. This program works on a Windows machine and is able to inventory the existing software and hardware in the network without having to install a client program on each computer. All information can then be consulted via a web interface. Lansweeper is available as freeware for small environments and for larger environments will paid must become. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Lansweeper 10.2.0.0, LsPush 8.4.100.1, LsAgent Windows 10.0.1.1, SQL 550

  • Added: LAN-11934 Cloud-linked Lansweeper installations can now see brand, model and OS lifecycle information on individual asset pages in Cloud
  • Added: LAN-11999 It is now possible to configure per LsAgent group under Scanning\LsAgent Scanning whether automatic LsAgent client updates are enabled. The default setting is “enabled” for all groups, both in new and updated Lansweeper installations.
  • Added: LAN-12468 Lansweeper now also scans the install location of Microsoft Store apps, if Store apps are enabled for scanning, and saves it in the tblSoftware.InstallLocation database field
  • Added: LAN-13246 Lansweeper now scans some additional properties of applications installed on Mac computers, including app path, and saves them in the tblMacApplications database table
  • Changed: LAN-13094 Added a software type column to the Software\Windows Software menu
  • Changed: LAN-13056 Added more indexes to the Lansweeper database to improve performance in certain areas
  • Changed: LAN-12391 If an OID lookup entry exists under Configuration\Asset Mapping for an asset scanned via SNMP, the model from that lookup entry is now used as the scanned asset model, taking precedence over any model info pulled from the device itself
  • Changed: LAN-11999 LsAgent version info is now displayed in the Configuration tab of LsAgent groups under Scanning\LsAgent Scanning
  • Changed: LAN-11999 LsAgent version info is now displayed on the Assets\LsAgent Assets page
  • Changed: LAN-11891 Made minor cosmetic improvements to the popups for creating Azure AD, Intune and Microsoft 365 scanning targets
  • Changed: LAN-13224 Performed a visual redesign of the top and left menus of the Lansweeper web console, giving these menus a more modern look and feel. A setting is available under Configuration\Website Settings to switch between the old and new UI.
  • Changed: LAN-12985 Scanned serial numbers are now taken into account by the non-Windows asset merge logic. If two non-Windows devices share a MAC address but have differing scanned serials, these devices no longer merge.
  • Changed: LAN-13235 Updated messaging throughout the web console to reflect that two-factor authentication and an app password are required now to use Gmail as a mail server for the help desk or alerts
  • Changed: LAN-12595 When installing or updating Lansweeper under the SQL LocalDB database server, LocalDB is now based on the more recent SQL Server 2014 Express SP3, build 12.3.6433.1
  • Changed: LAN-11744 When re-enabling a previously disabled scanned item interval, the refresh setting is now reverted to its previously configured value, instead of a default value of 5
  • Fixed: LAN-13117 Azure AD scanning can fail due to a DbUpdateException error related to postal code information

  • Fixed: LAN-12576 Character encoding issue in the Switch Scanning info text under Configuration\Server Options
  • Fixed: LAN-12650 Distinct AirWatch devices that share a MAC address aren’t correctly uniquely identified, resulting in AirWatch data being linked to incorrect assets

  • Fixed: LAN-13173 Even with Asset Radar set to Enabled, assets found in Asset Radar logs aren’t always scanned or scanned assets aren’t always linked to the correct Asset Radar log entries
  • Fixed: LAN-13101 Fujitsu warranty scanning is non-functional due to changes in the manufacturer’s website
  • Fixed: LAN-13141 If an initial push to Cloud repeatedly fails, database backups used for previous push attempts aren’t always cleaned up, taking up unnecessary disk space
