This article will guide you through the steps required to install the LiveDDM Management Client (LMC) at your Office.  

Before installing the LMC, please ensure that all User's sign out of, and shut down, LiveDDM on all workstations.  Failure to do so may cause issues with the LMC Configuration process.


Before you begin, please ensure that all items on the following list are satisfied:

  • You know the name of your LiveDDM Server
  • Ensure that you have access your LiveDDM Server, or a suitable LiveDDM Workstation, and have permission to install software
  • If installing on a machine other than the LiveDDM Server, the host machine must be able to reach the LiveDDM Server on your local network
  • You know the name of your LiveDDM SQL Server and LiveDDM Database (by default, the database name is LiveDDM)
  • You have your LiveDDM Account Number and License Number ready

If you need help with one or more items on the processing list, please email Support at for assistance.


The following minimum requirements must be met on the machine you are installing the LMC on:

  • 64bit CPU (Intel  Core i5+ or AMD equivalent)
