  • Patch Lady – tax software warns of Sept patching issues

    Posted on September 13th, 2018 at 12:02 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    A tax software vendor that supplies tax preparation software for the accounting biz is warning users to not install the September updates:

    There is no resolution at this time and if past historical events are any indication, the issue is probably caused by the .NET update included in the September updates.  I saw the pop of the warning on a Windows 7 machine, will be testing on Windows 10 next.

    Resolution:  On 9/13/18,  some ProSeries and Lacerte customers experienced issues logging into the program. Our initial investigation lead us to believe it was an issue with recent Windows updates.  This issue has been resolved and if you have any Windows updates needing to be installed, they can be installed now.
