Q. If LSMC is free software, why would I buy LSMC 11?
A. The free version (LSMC 6.2) is no longer being maintained or receiving updates. LSMC 11 is the latest new and improved release. It includes all the new updates and features, including Windows 11 compatibility, overhauled code, and much more. LSMC 11 can also be used on an unlimited number of computers with no restrictions unlike the free version of LSMC.
Q. What if I purchase LSMC 11 and the software does not work on my computer? Am I eligible for a refund?
A. No. It is our policy that digital products are not eligible for return and refunds will not be granted under any circumstances.
Q. Is there a way to know if LSMC 11 is going to work or not before I purchase it?
A. Yes. The LSMC 11 Compatibility Tool is able to verify compatibility on your system. More information can be found here – LSMC 11 Documentation: Compatibility Tool.
Q. LSMC installed without any issues, but it is not working. Why?
A. The most common reason why LSMC might not work is because of third party anti-virus software. The anti-virus software sees LSMC as an unknown executable file, so off to quarantine it goes! We have planned and adjusted things to support an increasing number of anti-virus programs, however there is always going to be that “one” that slips through the cracks.
Q. LSMC will not install. Why?
A. There are two common reasons for this. First, the computer’s hard drive may be encrypted using Bitlocker. This will require you to download and install LSMC for Bitlocker so you can enter your Bitlocker recovery key, which you MUST have. Next, it could be that your storage controller is not being detected and will require additional drivers to be added to the LSMC flash drive.
Q. I installed LSMC for Bitlocker and my drive is still locked. It’s asking me to enter a recovery key. Why did LSMC not unlock my drive?
A. LSMC for Bitlocker is not magic, and currently there is no way to circumvent Bitlocker drive encryption. Yes, it is THAT secure! LSMC for Bitlocker was not intended to unlock the drive automatically, but rather includes the necessary utilities which allow you to enter a Bitlocker recovery key. You must know your Bitlocker recovery key, and if you don’t, even LSMC for Bitlocker will not be able to help you.
