Special Notice for Church Windows Web (RD Web) Users who use Church Windows Payroll

UPDATE 07/20/2018: If issues using Church Windows Web Payroll on RD Web are continuing, please run all Microsoft Windows Updates on your system. The Windows update that was causing the issue has been remedied by a more recent Microsoft patch.


Microsoft Windows 10 Update has “broken” the Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

On 06/05/2018, Microsoft issued an update that likely installed automatically to many computers. This update affected a method that Church Windows VOS RDWeb churches communicate with their data, specifically in the Payroll portion of the program.

Suggested Remedies:

  • Uninstall the most recent Windows 10 Update (Realize that your computer will consistently prompt to again reinstall it, which you’ll need to ignore.)
  • Call VOS at 877-2TRYVOS  (877-287-9867) and request that they switch your church to Citrix Receiver instead of RDWeb
  • Wait for Microsoft to issue a fix patch, which could be an indefinite timeline.

What do we recommend?

In order to get Payroll up and running the quickest, we suggest the second option above. Call VOS and request that they switch your church to Citrix.

We apologize for the inconvenience and assure you that resolving this issue is out of our control

Should you have questions, you may definitely call us at 800.533.5227.
