How do I limit features, configure parameters, and enable logging when deploying the LastPass silent installer for Windows?

    LastPass admins can choose to limit the features that are included when deploying the LastPass silent installer.

    Note: Are you seeing something different? See instructions for the previous experience in the legacy (old) Admin Console.

    Limit installed features for LastPass

    You can limit the features that are included by default (view list of default features) in your installation of LastPass for your users. To select features to install, add the selected Feature ID to the ADDLOCAL parameter as a comma separated list.

    The following example shows how to install the IE plugin and all desktop shortcuts using the ADDLOCAL parameter:


    msiexec /quiet /i LastPassInstaller.msi ADDLOCAL=ExplorerExtension,GenericShortcuts,DesktopShortcut

    Use the ADDLOCAL parameter with any of the following Feature IDs:

    Feature ID Description
    ExplorerExtension Install the IE plugin
    ChromeExtension Install the Chrome extension and binary component
    EdgeExtension Install the Edge extension
    LastpassUwpApp Install the LastPass UWP application (available from MS Store)
    PasswordImporter Install the Password Importer tool
    GenericShortcuts Install start menu shortcuts pointing to the vault, help, uninstall, and website
    DesktopShortcut Install desktop shortcut pointing to vault
    Updater Install the automatic updater
    BinaryComponent Install the binary component for Chrome

    Configure parameters for LastPass

    The following additional parameters can be configured for your installation:

    Parameter Description/Values
    INSTALLDIR Set the installation directory, give full path. Default is C:\Program Files (x86)\LastPass. Example: INSTALLDIR="C:\LastPass"
    KEEPUSERDATA If value is set to 1, then user data is not removed during uninstall. Takes effect with the /x parameter.
    DISABLEIEBROKER Disable Broker
    UNINSTALLSURVEY If value is set to 1, uninstall opens the Uninstall Survey. Default value is 0.

    DISABLEEXPORT Disable export feature
    DISABLEIMPORT Disable import feature

    NODISABLECHROMEPWMGR If value is set to 1, does not disable Chrome password manager. Default value is 0, which disables the Chrome password manager.
    AUTOLOGOFFONCLOSEIE If value is set to 1, automatically logs off user if Internet Explorer is closed.
    TRYENABLESIDELOADING If value is set to 1, the installer will try to enable sideloading on the machine. Default value is 0.
    TRYENABLESIDELOADINGFORINSTALL If value is set to 1, the installer will try to enable sideloading on the machine only for the install. Default value is 0.

    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: Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: LastPass. 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.
