HOW TO UPGRADE (REALLY) OLD MAS90 VERSIONS
About once a year I encounter a customer who has a VERY old version of MAS 90. My last upgrade was from 3.60 to Sage 200cloud version 2020. There are a number of interim versions that are required before you can get to the latest Sage release. Here's a list of the steps I took. (Note: You may need to modify this list if you are upgrading a site with modifications ).
DID YOU PURCHASE AN ISV VERSION OF MICROSOFT SQL? READ THIS
Sage has emailed partners suggesting that they check their customer sites who may have purchased the Microsoft SQL product from Sage to ensure compliance with Microsoft licensing.
This request only applies to the SQL product itself when licensed through Sage. If you license Microsoft SQL through Microsoft then the regular licensing requirements apply.
What's the concern? I think this relates to licensing restrictions for the ISV VERSION OF MS SQL with respect to (a) hosting it and (b) using it for applications other than Sage 100 Premium. Read more here.
SAGE 100 2020 PU1 DUE SEPTEMBER 17
Sage's first product update for their latest 2020 release should ship on or about September 17, 2020. Expect a product update for 2019 as well as a Payroll update on that day as well. If you are planning an upgrade that includes multiple enhancements you may want to wait and install this update during your upgrade process. Via Sage City.
