Please Note: Before installing the release, please restart all applicable servers and
workstations and ensure that there are no pending Windows updates.
1.1
The publisher of classic/premiersetup.exe cannot be verified
Once the installer download is complete from the Customer Zone, the browser might give
the following warning message, not allowing the user to run the installer:
The Security Warning prompt is a security measure in Windows 7 and Windows 8 to ask
for permission (like UAC – User Account Control) before allowing a downloaded or copied
file from the internet or another computer to be opened or run on your computer.
Select Run to proceed with the installation.
1.2
Cannot start setup
Once the installer download is complete from the Customer Zone, and the user try to run
the setup file, the following message appear:
Copyright – Classic/Premier
Page 1 of 8
The message could refer to the user’s security settings on the browser/machine. The antivirus might be blocking the setup file. Please get IT to revise the settings and allow for the
file to run. Alternatively try do download and install the update from another machine.
The message could also mean that the file is incomplete. The setup file will not run if the
file has not downloaded fully. Check the size of the download file, the file size needs to be
155 MB for Classic and 206 MB for Premier on Release 4.7a. If the file size is less than
the indicated size, the user will need to download a new installer file. Also note that the
VIP Installer has no passwords.
This message could also be related to the internet connection. We would suggest that the
user clear their browser cache or use a different browser to download the installer file.
1.3
Local Administrative Rights
When installing on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2008 or Server 2012, UAC (User Account
Control) is enabled:

For limited users, i.e. users without local administrator rights, an elevation message
will be displayed prompting you to install with an administrator’s account. This implies
that the credentials of an administrator’s account must be used for the installation.
Please contact your administrator (IT Department) for assistance

For users with local administrator rights, the rights must still be elevated, but a
username and password will not be required

When using Windows 8 and 8.1 the UAC (User Account Control) must also be
disabled on the Local Security settings of the Workstation
– Open Control Panel
– Select Administrative tools
– Select Local Security Policies
– Expand Local Policies
– Click on Security Options
Please disable all the User Account Control policies as per screen shot below and then
reboot the Workstation.

VIP System Closed
During the installation process, the Compatibility Check will verify if there are any files
open in the selected VIP system folder:

Do a rebuild on the data of all companies via Support Help (ensure the Support Help
shortcut is pointing to the correct folder), to confirm if any files are locked

The VIP system is open – close all instances on the workstations and/or servers

It is possible the installer was downloaded into the VIP system folder. Ensure the
installer is not open within the VIP system folder or subfolder. (TAKE NOTE: if the file
is run from the DOWNLOADS folder, it will not give an error as this folder is ignored by
the installer)

Check that there are no current intergrations with Premier HR or synchronisation with
ESS

Sage Connected Services might be communicating with servers, temporary stop the
service

Ensure that under the Task Manager, that there are no instances of “extend 32-bit
Runtime (32 bit) running

Check that there are no files with “Read-only” status or in use. To check this:
– Go into the VIP Directory
– Select the InstallerLogs folder

– Open the latest install log file with Notepad

This is a known error on Windows 8. Please install the update directly on the server where
payroll is installed on.
1.6
Fatal error during installation

In these cases, there is something interfering with the install process. The following
checks can be done to resolve this issue:

If possible, install the update on the computer/server where the system is installed on.
The user needs full permissions / administrator rights when installing the update.

Stop the ESS and Premier HR services if they are still running – The IT department
should be able to assist with this process. Refer to the ESS and Premier HR install
notes for details on how to apply this.

Do a “Disk Cleanup” on the drive where the Windows Operating system is installed (if
a Terminal Server is used, log in on the server directly, the action must be performed
on the server drive with the operating system).

Go to “My Computer”, right-click on the drive, select “Properties”

Select “Disk Cleanup”.

Tick the Temporary Files box (and others options if the user prefer so)

When all else fails, advise the client to restart the server

The install of new update was successful however there are errors during
conversion process.
Once the update was installed successfully on the VIP system folder, the user will open
up the VIP system to enable the conversion of company data to the new release. This
might bring up some errors, if there are problems with the data.
When this happens, the following should be done:

Always do the installation on the location where the system is installed

Deactivate the anti-virus software which actively scan the folder

Ensure no one is accessing the VIP folder or files


Restore Full System Backup (remember, during update process we make a backup of
all companies/full system backup to the “Backup” folder in the VIP directory)

Do a rebuild on all PAY files with the installed. There is usually issues on some file
with the directory – If the rebuild in the fails, do a manual rebuild on the VIP system
data and deal with the issue accordingly
Run the installer again on the folder, and upgrade the system.

1.9
Destination folder verification failed
Ensure that the correct VIP payroll directory is selected when browsing on the Install
Wizard. The Support Help function can be used to see in the System Information block,
exactly where the VIP system directory is situated.
When the update installer starts running, it tests to see if the system is open by renaming
the file VIPSAL.ACU to VIPSALTMP.ACU. In some cases, the installer did not finalise the
install process previously, and the VIPSALTMP.ACU is not renamed back to
VIPSAL.ACU. When the user get the above error, ensure to check the VIP folder(s), to
ensure the VIPSAL.ACU is there, and VIPSALTMP.ACU is not there.

If there is a VIPSALTMP.ACU but no VIPSAL.ACU, rename the VIPSALTMP.ACU to
VIPSAL.ACU
