Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

If you installed the shared files on a network, you must also run the desktop setup application on each workstation. The desktop setup application ensures that each workstation meets the minimum operating application requirements and confirms that all required components are installed.

The desktop setup application adds to each workstation’s desktop a shortcut to the single network installation of Accounting CS (on your firm’s server). This keeps all global files and data in a single location on the server. Network users should not install the full application on their own local workstations.

To run the desktop setup application from each workstation, do the following.

  1. Verify that you are logged in to your computer as an administrator.
  2. Close all open applications.
  3. Click Start on the Windows taskbar and choose Run.
  4. In the Run dialog, enter X:\WinCSI\Accounting CS\Desktop\Setup.exe (where X is the server location where the Shared files are installed).

    Note: If you need to uninstall the Accounting CS desktop setup from a workstation.

    3. Select Apps & features in the left pane.
    4. Select the program to remove, and then click the Uninstall button.
  5. Click OK. The setup wizard installs or updates Accounting CS and the necessary components. You may need to restart your computer one or more times during this step.
