Can the Student version of Sage 50 Premium 2016 be updated to the 2017 version?

The college has 2017 version on their computers but students were sold the 2016 texts and version of the program. When they do work in classroom, they can not open at home since their home program is an older version. Can their 2016 student version be updated to the 2017 version?

  • Hello ,

    Thank you for contacting us. The students could download the Sage 50 2017 software version from Step 3 at the link: https://www.sage.com/ca/about-us/education. Have them go through the registration process to acquire codes by email to activate the 2017 student version (it's free and it doesn't matter if they've already acquired the 2016). They won't have to worry about the 2016 install on their computers.

    Any 2016 formatted data files just need to be opened on the installed 2017 version, they may need to be converted which the program will prompt for automatically.
