Here is an excerpt from the U.S. 2011 January Payroll Tax Update For Microsoft Dynamics ® GP Round 2
“Installation is divided into two portions: the tax table update and the program code update. Installing the tax table update is required for all states included in the Round 2 update.
To install the tax table update:
You can run the tax update installation from any workstation. The update installs payroll tax table data on the server computer where your existing Microsoft Dynamics GP application data is located. You need to install the tax table update only once.
To install the program code update:
You need to install the update on the server as well as every workstation that runs Microsoft Dynamics GP.
Installation instructions vary, depending on the release you are using. Follow instructions for the release you are using:
Installing the program code update for Release 9.0 (links to a different part of the document)
Installing the program code update for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or Release 10.0 (links to a different part of the document)
Before you begin, ask all Microsoft Dynamics GP users to exit the application until the update is complete. Exit all other applications, turn off the screen saver, and back up important data (including Forms.dic, Reports.dic, and Dynamics.vba if they exist) before you proceed with the installation.
Note: The Payroll Update Engine, which is used to install the tax table update, is not supported on 64-bit operating systems when running Release 9.0, or Release 10.0 prior to Service Pack 3. For more information, refer to the Knowledge Base article at

MicrosoftDynamicsGP-KB2477916-v10-ENU.exe (for U.S. English) and
