.NET Framework for Aatrix Payroll Forms
Payroll Tax Forms by Aatrix requires that Windows computers have .NET Framework version 4.6 or higher installed. This means if your .NET Framework version is lower than 4.6 and you try to run your Payroll Forms it will prompt you to install the .NET update. This install will take at least 5 minutes to complete, sometimes longer.
If you try to install the .NET Framework update and it does not work, then you may need to have an IT professional assist with manually installing it.
