Payroll tax updates can take place throughout the year – it’s never necessarily limited to just the beginning of the new year.  With this in mind, it is very important to keep up with installing the latest tax updates at the proper time.

As easy as the automatic update is for taxes, a lot of users run into the error “Unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.”

This error is generally caused by User Account Control (UAC) or user permissions.  Typically, logging onto the workstation or the server as an administrator and with the sa user will be enough to bypass this error and install the tax updates.  However, if you are still receiving this error, you can download the tax update (Tx.cab file) from CustomerSource and then run the update as a SQL query against the DYNAMICS database.
