PAYE-Master: 

We have developed a utility which will upgrade your PAYE-Master data files to address the issues caused by the recent Windows Update.

You will no longer need to remove the Windows Updates once this correction is in place on your system. 


On the 8th January 2019, Microsoft published several updates across various Windows versions which have affected the normal operation of several of our payroll products.

The affected products are:

  • IRIS PAYE-Master
  • IRIS Payroll Business
  • IRIS Bureau Payroll
  • IRIS Payroll Professional
  • Earnie

We are working, with the highest priority, towards a long term correction for the issues presented after the Windows Update(s) is installed.

In the meantime, for users to run their payroll normally on the products listed above, we recommend you remove the offending Windows Update(s)
