Running vprtmupd.exe To Update Vertex

It took me a while to figure it out. I couldn't find any information on how to run this in the supplied documents. The image below shows how I ran this from the command prompt:

When I tried running this by just executing the exe, the command promt would open and after I entered the path for the data I would get an error saying "Unable to establish a connection with the Payroll Tax Database."

Fixed Dell Latitude Display Flickering

I was having problems with the external displays that I use with my Dell Latitude E7440. At work they would flicker, and at home one would flicker and the other would stop working after about two hours. I updated the video drivers and BIOS and the problem gone.

Dell makes it easy to update your drivers. Just go to the Dell support web site and you will find all of the latest drivers for your laptop.
