I am trying to install Sage 50 Accounting on a new computer for a small business. I installed the software yesterday, then tried to activate it, but the company was having issues with their activation so they said to try later. When I came in today to activate the software, I click on the icon and now get a message that says "Sage 50 could not be started. Please try again later. If it cannot be started contact Customer Support". The program will not open at all.
I tried to contact Customer Service, but they could not give me a reason why it worked yesterday, no problems, but today it won't even open the program at all. They suggested we buy support, but I hate to pay for support if this is something I can fix easily. I believe I installed the software correctly (followed the online screens) because it was working fine yesterday.
Has anyone ever seen this problem and is there an easy fix? How can I at least get the program to open? I could try to uninstall it and reinstall it if needed.
Here are links to a couple of knowledge base entries that may solve the problems for you.
If neither of these work you could try doing a repair install. Just launch the installation again and when it sees that Sage 50 is already installed, it will ask if you want to uninstall or repair.
