I am looking at your demo version and have entered quite a lot of data for my staff. When I buy Ace Payroll, will I have to enter all this data again?

No, you will not have to enter your data again.

Whenever a new version of Ace Payroll is installed it makes no changes to any of your data files. This includes data you may have entered while evaluating the program.

Any data entered into the demonstration version is automatically used when you install your licensed version. There is no need to try and delete the demonstration data or program - just install the licensed version, and all of your data will still be there.


I am trying to download your demo onto an Apple Mac and struggling. What could be the problem?

Ace Payroll is not a Mac program, but runs well on your Mac if it is set up to run Windows.

For more information see our documentation Using Ace Payroll On An Apple Mac.


Is it possible to download Ace Payroll as a zip file rather than a self extractor?

Yes, as long as you know what you are doing the Ace Payroll program and help files can be downloaded in zip format without the self extractor, the installation program, or the sample data files.


I want to remove the Ace Payroll demo from my computer. How do I do this?

It is easy to remove Ace Payroll from your computer.

When viewing the files on your computer, choose the drive you installed to - this will normally be C:\

Now look for the folder you installed to - this will normally be WINPAY.

Right click on the folder, then click Delete. This completely removes Ace Payroll from your computer, and you can also delete any shortcuts you set up.

You will not find Ace Payroll under your Add/Remove programs as we have found this does not cleanly remove an application.

Follow the above instructions to cleanly and completely remove Ace Payroll.
