As more and more Customers upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 to get all the AWESOME new functionality that everyone is talking about, we are starting to see this error message when you try to install the US Payroll tax update from within Microsoft Dynamics GP,

(Microsoft Dynamics GP menu >> Maintenance >> U.S. Payroll Updates >> Check for Tax Updates)

The entry UpdateLogin is missing in the dex.ini file.  Please contact your system administrator.
The entry Pathname is missing in the dex.ini file.  Please contact your system administrator.

The error is popping up because the Web Client Runtime components were installed with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 installation on the machine installing the tax updates.  You must install tax updates on a computer that does not have the Web Client Runtime feature installed.

The Web Client Runtime feature should be installed on the machines that will be used for the Web Client.  Processes that are for rich client should be completed on a rich client install where the Web Client features is not installed.

Thanks, have fun installing 2013 Tax update round 3, released yesterday!
