Downloading and Installing Updates
TaxSlayer Pro will download configured updates automatically every day upon initial start up (when the program is opened for the first time each day). To manually update federal and state programs, from the main menu of the program select:
- Download/Install Updates
- Select updates that are highlighted in red that you wish to install
Important: For offices using TaxSlayer Pro in a network, a computer designated as a Workstation get its updates from the computer designated as the File Server. Therefore, each day you should download and install updates on the File Server first, and once completed run updates on the Workstation. On the Workstation, from the main menu of TaxSlayer Pro select Updates.
When 'Use Update Manager' is set to 'YES', this screen will appear allowing you to change which updates automatically install when you open the program. The Update Manager allows you to select each of the Federal, Business and E-file updates, as well as up to three states that will automatically update.
