What is Logitech Updater?

Logitech Updater is the software update program that runs with Windows in the background and checks for updates, and automatically downloads and installs them if found based on the user's settings. The program can be configured by the user for maintaining a schedule for when to check the remote server for periodic software updates. If it finds an item to download, it will download and install the new update.
It is designed to keep any Logitech devices and drivers up to date.


The most used version is 1.70, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The main program executable is SrvLnch.exe. The software installer includes 201 files and is usually about 1.28 MB (1,337,318 bytes). LogitechUpdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
