Adobe Acrobat Updates | ePayStub Locking up GP

ePayStub is our Dynamics GP add-on solution for Canadian Payroll that enables you to email employee paystubs and T4s, T4As, and R1s through Microsoft Dynamics GP. Recently we have received reports from some of our ePayStub clients that they are unable to email out PDF’d pay-stubs, and that Dynamics GP had locked up. This issue has been identified and is a result of the April 2019 Adobe Acrobat update.

Dynamics GP and ePayStub send the pay-stub in a post script file format for Adobe to convert to a PDF. The latest update for Adobe Acrobat contains a new trust setting which alerts the user as each file is sent with the following notification:

It has been observed that this message does not necessarily come to the foreground, so in most cases users are not even be aware of the alert message.

To resolve this issue, you will need to perform the following:

  1. Restart your machine, as the latest updates will not have been fully deployed until the machine has been restarted.
  2. Disable the security warning message before postscript to PDF file conversion for both Adobe Acrobat Writer and Adobe Acrobat Distiller. Details regarding these steps are located below and at the following URL:  https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/security-warning-postscript-pdf.html
