  • I attended several sessions at the Sage Intacct Advantage virtual conference this week. Overall a very good conference. For more here are my observations.

  • Because a large number of readers also work with Acumatica it's worth mentioning acuCONNECT November 4-5, 2020 which is an independent virtual conference sponsored by the AcuConnect user group. Acumatica CEO Jon Roskill opens with a keynote and there are numerous sessions given by prominent members of the Acumatica community. The conference is free and the full agenda is here.

Sage Squashed a Lot/Serial Bug in Product Update 1 

This resolves an issue where data conversion takes a long time or appears to hang on IM_LotSerialTransactionHistory when it contains a large number of transactions. For additional information please see the  Sage KB entry.

You should only see this issue if you had already installed Sage 100cloud 2020 product update 1 which added lot/serial traceability to Bill of Materials.

How To: Automatically Enter Sage Registration Codes Upon Installation

It can be a pain to copy and paste registration codes during your installation of a new Sage 100 version. Instead of rushing through this during setup you can actually create an INI file which holds the registration keys from which Sage will read and install itself.

Here's how:

Create a masreg.ini text file and put that onto the root of C on the server. (Copy / paste the values from Portal).

The Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud installer reads everything automatically from the file.

Create the masreg.ini to include the following (substitute your actual product registration information):

Company= end user company name
Reseller=Reseller Company Name
RegId= Sage customer number

Place the above masreg.ini into the root of the server prior to beginning the Sage 100cloud installation.
