Once Transact is fully installed, do not launch Transact until this next step is completed.

Without this being done Transact will not work.


  1. Download this updated file;  TransActTSE
  2. On downloading a alert dialog box may appear (shown below), select "Download anyway"



When you have this type of alert, you will need to go to the download icon in your browser and click on the  right arrow  and in the next window
select "Download suspicious file" to complete the download process.


  1. This downloaded file will need to be copied to the local "C" drive in the Transact\WSUpdate folder.
  2. In your search area of your computer, the bottom left corner of your screen where the magnifying glass icon resides, type in  "C:\Transact\WSUpdate", select open file location from the right side of this search window.
  3. Copy the updated file "TransActTSE" from your downloads folder into this folder. A dialog box will appear, select "Replace the file in the destination". If it does not ask you this, then the file name that you downloaded may have a number attached to the end of the file name, which will need to be removed before copying it into this WSUpdate folder. The existing file in this folder must be replaced.
  4. When you launch Transact now it will ask you if you want to store the key into the cache, type "y" and hit return. Now it will ask if you want to install the latest version of Transact software, type "y" and hit return. This will now remove all the older Transact files from your computer and then install the latest version of Transact client software. Once it is done removing all the old files it will just quit. Open up Transact and you should now see your Transact log in window.
