How to Install Payroll Pro Version 1
The Setup File for Version 1
The full setup file for Payroll Pro Version 1 can be saved to your computer by clicking here. However please read the following instructions before doing this.
Payroll Pro should be fully installed - it will not work if just copied from one computer to another. The reason for this is that the installation process will install some files which do not transfer from one computer to another by copying.
The quickest way to install Payroll Pro is by saving the setup file - see the link above - onto your computer and then running it.
When downloading using Internet Explorer: If using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you will need to save the file into a folder - eg c:\foldername - rather than just onto the C: drive. You may have a downloads folder already on your hard drive. If not you may need to use "My Computer" or "Computer" to create a folder. Often when downloading a file you are given the option to create a folder at the same time.
When downloading using Google Chrome or FireFox: Some browsers such as these automatically select a folder for the downloaded file to be saved in, and have options for running the file after downloading.
If you cannot remember where you put the downloaded file, you can download it again.
If you have any problems, please see the section below "Problems Installing"
Where to install Payroll Pro
It is best to use the default location provided during installation - ie the folder PayPro. We recommend that you do NOT install into the "Program Files" folder, as some later versions of Windows including Vista and Windows 7 have some security features which block some programs from using all their functions when installed in the Program Files folder.
After Installing Payroll Pro
You should restart your computer after installing Payroll Pro.
