    • Service releases and tax updates downloaded through Services, Check for Updates are saved to the Updates folder in your data path.
    • In a network setup, service release updates must be installed on the server first.
    • Tax updates must be installed at each computer using Sage, but the order does not matter.
    • The most recent service release must be installed before installing the most recent tax update.
    • If running Windows Vista, 7, or 8, you may need to disable User Account Control to successfully install the update.
    • If none of the above steps correct the issue then use Programs and Features in the Windows Control Panel to remove Sage 50, download a new copy of the installation files and use those to re-install Sage 50 (new installation files include the latest updates)
