Please can anyone help me to install SAGE

Recommended Posts

Hi There

 

I have been using SAGE 50 Accounts 2008 on my old pc.

 

I have now got a new computer and I am wanting to install Sage Line50 Version 12.

 

I have managed to install the program so far, but I need to restore my backup which I have taken from my old pc. I have gone into restore data and it looks like it is restoring ok but then when I try to access the programme it won't let me in?

 

If anyone can help in any way I would be very grateful.

 

Thank you so much.

Is your backup data compatible between the two versions?

 

Sage 50 Accounts 2008 and Sage Line 50 Version 12 are different products, so if they use a different file format, one may not be compatible with the other.

 

When did you buy the two products? Assuming Sage 50 Accounts 2008 was released in 2008 (or thereabouts), when was Sage Line 50 Version 12 released? According to this article, it is over a decade old!

Are you trying to restore NEWER backup data to an OLDER version?

 

Sorry I can't be any more help at the moment, I've not used Line 50 since we upgraded to Sage MMS / 200, nearly a decade ago now.

There was a point at which Sage changed the product entirely and it was not possible to transfer from older versions yourself.

I had this problem and Sage said they could do it for me but, the cost was eyewatering.

This may not be the case for you though, mine was a very old program.

It is also worth knowing that the Sage yearly updates are in fact the full program, so if you want it on a different computer use that.

 

Try backing up to a different place, dongle, disc, external hard drive?

 

Sorry couldn't be more help.
