Version 4: Patch 38, Released March 22, 2010

This patch has been compressed with the PKZip utility. After downloading, you must decompress it before installing it with the DeltaDOS program.
This patch affects not only programs, but also data files in the SYS and DATA directories. The above link (PATCH38.ZIP) is rather large because it contains all the files updated by this patch. If you would rather download the files for each directory separately (which are smaller), use the links below:

Copy this file to the APROGS directory, decompress it and install the Patch38.DPF file with the DeltaDOS program.
Contains sample data files with new help articles and updated data.
Copy this file to the AUSER directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.

How To Install Patch 38
This patch is available in one of two forms: either download the PATCH38.ZIP file which contains the program patch as well as the System and Data files, or separately download the files 38PROGS.ZIP, 38SYS,ZIP and 38DATA.ZIP. In either case, these instructions can be followed for loading the patch after downloading the file(s).
The PATCH38.ZIP contains the following files:
The patch file used to update the program files; copy it to the APROGS directory and install with DeltaDOS.
Copy this file to your SYS directory (the AFILES directory) and decompress it, allowing it to overwrite existing files.
Copy this file to your DATA directory (the AUSER directory) and decompress it, allowing it to overwrite existing files.
If you chose to download the ZIP files for each directory separately, copy the 38PROGS.ZIP file to the APROGS directory, decompress it into the PATCH38.DPF file, then use the DeltaDOS program to install the patch.
To apply all the changes in this patch, follow these steps:
  1. As always, before loading any new software, make a backup of your data files.

  2. Decompress PATCH38.ZIP into the APROGS directory, or, if you downloaded separate files, decompress the 38PROGS.ZIP file into the APROGS directory.

  3. Move the 38DATA.ZIP file to the AUSER directory and move the 38SYS.ZIP file to the AFILES directory.

  4. Go to the AUSER directory and decompress the 38DATA.ZIP file, allowing it to overwrite existing files.

  5. Go to the AFILES directory and decompress the 38SYS.ZIP file, allowing it to overwrite existing files.

  6. Go to the APROGS directory and use the DeltaDOS Utility to apply the DPF patch file. Click here for instructions on using DeltaDOS.

  7. For Screen Builder Users: Because of changes to the screen layout held within the updated Payroll SCFM file, you'll need to update your custom SCFM file for Payroll. IF YOU HAVE NOT CUSTOMIZED the Tax Table screens, you won't lose anything!

    Click here for a discussion of how to update custom SCFM files.

    The specific programs affected are:

Payroll 2, Tax Tables: New prompt to define Table Type added to Brackets screen.

If you have customized screens in Payroll program 2, you will lose those customizations and will have to redo them after applying this patch and updating the SCFM files through Screen Builder.
