Right after the August update for Peachtree Complete 2009, the first attempt to run the Payroll tax forms for city taxes, an error message popped up indicating that a Microsoft Visual C++ SP1 runtime files needed to be upgraded.  The error message provided a link to install those runtime files.  

I was surprised by the pop up and looked up what I could find, but all I found was entries poking fun at C++ from back in 2007.

The message say "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 runtime files required" and then provides a link to download it. The file that you download is named vcredist_x86.exe from

I didn't have to exit Peachtree.  After installing that program from Microsoft, I went back to printing the tax forms and didn't get the error message the second time around.
