Read These Tips to Improve Your Installation Process

To set the stage for a successful installation, keep these tips in mind:

  • If you have customizations, please ask for help before you get started. SWK Technologies can help you identify if your customizations or add-ons are compatible with the latest version of Sage 100.
  • Before beginning the installation process, make sure you have the Sage Download Notification email, including your serial number, your customer number, your user keys, and your product keys.
  • You can install most modules that have not been purchased and access those modules for free for 45 daysbefore you are required to purchase and register them. This is a great opportunity, but make sure you do not integrate with non-registered modules unless you intend to purchase them.
  • Download all of your Sage 100 2022 files before you intend to install them. They are big files, and the download can be slow.
  • You must perform a parallel installation to a new destination for Sage 100 2022 and delete the old modules after installing the new modules.
  • Check to make sure all your printers work after your installation.
