AuthLite Interactive Documentation
Quick Start: Install and protect Domain Admins AuthLite Features Supported Tokens Installation and Upgrading Configuration Token Management How to Log In


  • Microsoft .NET framework version 4 or later
  • All installs require administrator permissions on the local machine
  • The first Domain Controller install should be run as a user with permission to add/modify an Active Directory Application Partition  (i.e. Enterprise Admin) and add properties to the AD Schema (i.e. a Schema Admin).  Subsequent DC installs should just require local administrator on the DC.


The same installation software is used for both workstations and servers:

  • AuthLite_installer_x64.msi for 64-bit platforms
  • AuthLite_installer_x86.msi for 32-bit platforms

You can get them from the Downloads page.

This installer is designed to be run through the user interface, but may also be installed unattended through group policy


A system reboot is required to load (or update, or unload) AuthLite infrastructure components.  After the Finish screen, the installer will remind you a reboot is needed.

Before you can start using AuthLite, you need to enter a license number  (either an evaluation key or a purchased license).  The License Information screen of the AuthLite Configuration program is used to accomplish this process.
