There are two main ways to perform a Qtac Payroll software installation.

Firstly, if your computer has an optical drive, then you can use a CD. We send these out to all our customers if requested. Alternatively, you could use a download which you can find on our website. Further details on both methods can be found below.

Client Computer changes for 19/20

For the Qtac 19/20 payroll software all computers must be running .Net Framework 4.5+. A new version of Crystal reports is also required and will need to be installed on each client machine. Our full install will do this automatically however you can download the crystal reports upgrade by clicking here.

Getting the Software

Whether you are an existing or new customer you should receive an email with your pin and a link to the download of our software. You can also get to our downloads page by clicking here.

Please note: We no longer send out CD versions of the software by default. However you can contact our sales team to request a CD.

How to Install

Insert the QTAC Install CD into the CD drive on your computer or download the latest set-up file. A window should pop up automatically with a series of options. Click the ‘Install’ button to begin. The installation wizard contains full instructions on the install process.

You will need to select which type of install you require: ‘Standalone/Server’ or a ‘Client’ Install. If you are unsure of what option to pick – then you most likely just need the ‘Standalone/Server‘ install.

Standalone/server: Installs the main application and prerequisites locally on the computer you are using. Can be used for single PCs/laptops or installing on to your main application server.

Client: To install the necessary prerequisites on a client computer. The ‘Standalone/Server‘ should be run on the server first, and then the client install should be run on any machines that will be using QTAC. Client machines are then pointed at the shared server location.
