How Can I Update to the Latest Version of Lightning Payroll?

 

Lightning Payroll is a desktop program for Windows and Mac OSX computers. We frequently update the software with new features, performance improvements and bug fixes. These updates usually get released every two to four weeks and install themselves via an automatic program download.

If a program update is available you will be greeted with a prompt asking if you would like to update the program.

Click the Check for Updates Now? at the bottom of the program to check for any newer versions.

Reinstalling or updating your software fixes most issues if they should arise.

If updating fails for some reason, you can download the latest version directly from the links below:

(your data is safe and will not be affected by reinstallation)

Download for Windows 64 bit (Windows 8.1 and above, assuming you have the latest Windows updates)

Download for Windows 32 bit (Windows 8.1 and above, assuming you have the latest Windows updates)

Download for Mac OSX (Version 10.14 (Mojave) and above)

You can disable or configure your updates, as well as find other update settings under Settings >> Updates.

Legacy Version Information (Windows 7, Mac OSX 10.12/10.13)

We have recently updated Lightning Payroll with the very latest libraries and base software. This was done to keep up with recent Mac and Windows updates, keeping the program secure and greatly improving performance.

As a result of these updates we've had to drop support for Windows 7, Mac OSX 10.12 and Mac OSX 10.13 operating systems.

We understand it can take some time to upgrade or replace your computer so we have added the latest critical updates (including 2022-23 tax and super changes) into a legacy version of Lightning Payroll. These legacy versions of Lightning Payroll will be fine to use for the next financial year, but we will not be able to support them beyond this.

If you are on one of the above unsupported operating systems, download the legacy installer for your system below. Once you update your computer, Lightning Payroll will reactivate downloads and get you back onto the very latest versions automatically.
