Installing on second PC

Postby lsapadin@nyc.rr.com » Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:41 am

I installed LastPass successfully on my home PC and cleaned up data imported from another password manager. Now I want to install on my office PC and have the same data that I cleaned up on the home PC. However, the installation isn't working and I only have access to the web version, not the Firefox plug-in. How do I install on the second PC and end up with the same data that I have on the first PC?

What "isn't working"? Did the install of the Firefox plugin fail? I have LP installed on five computers and can access the same LastPass vault from any of them.

I end up with the web version of LastPass that has limited functionality. At the top is the following message:

"**It is highly recommended that you install the LastPass plug-in for the best possible experience.
You may encounter reduced functionality otherwise."

So clearly the plug-in is not installing properly. I'm wondering if it isn't some kind of Administrator lock-down by my employer. I'll look into that. Otherwise, I have no idea why it won't install.

Which source for the Firefox plugin did you use? Try https://lastpass.com/misc_download.php

Go here and we'll auto-select the plugin for you to install - follow the prompts on the screen and login and you should have full functionality on your second machine : http://www.lastpass.com/dl

Not sure what happened, but the LastPass bug now appears on my browser, so the plug-in is working. Thanks for the ideas and support. -- Larry
