No Payroll Update for July 1st, 2019

The following is a direct quote received from the CRA: "There will not be a July 2019 edition of the Payroll Deductions Tables guide (T4032), Payroll Deductions Supplementary Tables guide (T4008) and the Payroll Deductions Formulas guide (T4127) as there are no legislative changes or updates required."

January 9th, 2019 Microsoft Windows Update

Around the 9th of January Microsoft released a mass update to their Windows operating system. It would appear that many issues have arisen from this update. One of the problems was related to the Jet engine, which we use to access our databases. The end result is that many of our Corporate & Professional payroll users would receive “database connector errors” or “invalid parameter errors” in various parts of the software. However, if the Windows update is removed the error no longer appears. We are not sure when Microsoft plans to fix this issue, but I would assume they are working on it, as they have announced they will be releasing another patch to Windows later in January. Over the past several days we have worked diligently to come up with a work-around and are happy to report that we have succeeded. The change requires a slight change in the structure of our data, but once complete, the software will once again, perform as before, with or without the faulty MS update installed. To obtain the update, simply visit our customer portal. Note that you will need to run “check structure” after installation, to update your database.

What Our Customers Say...

  • "Every once in a while I get a chance to recommend the Classic Software solution to people. I always point to one big “feature”:

    Winledge by Classic Software is a flexible and comprehensive financial management system. However, the truly distinguishing feature is the company.

    The Classic Software creators are available to answer questions and to modify the system to meet individual customer needs. Sometimes the changes are for an agreed contract price and sometimes they are included in the annual service fee. Those of us who are experienced with accounting systems know that no system meets every need you have. The company’s readiness to listen and respond is a distinction that makes a world of difference in our satisfaction with the Winledge system over any other system we have used or considered."
