Determining the Currently Installed Version

Please refer to this article to determine the currently installed version.

Obtaining the Update

Please log in to the Client Support Portal to download the upgrade installer.

Test Installation

We recommend that you create a Test Installation and upgrade it before committing to updating your live system.


Do not uninstall Layton ServiceDesk prior to upgrading. This is an update, not a full installer.

  1. Extract the lsd667_upgrade folder from the archive to the root of an attached, local drive.
  2. Back up your database
  3. In Windows Services Console:
    1. Stop the IIS Admin service
    2. Stop the LaytonServiceDesk service
  4. Open the lsd667_upgrade folder.
  5. Disable anti-virus software on the server, if running. This has been known to prevent the copying of files, especially .exe files, to the Program Files folder.
  6. Right-click the installer lsd667_upgrade.exe and select Run as administrator. This will avoid permission issues.
  7. In Windows Services Console, start the IIS Admin and LaytonServiceDesk services.
  8. Enable anti-virus software, if applicable.
