Resolution

Notes: First, make sure Sage 100 is already installed at the server. Note the installed path location. For the Advanced or Premium editions, have ready the Port Number and Server Name that the Sage 100 Service or Application is running on. If you are encountering installation problems or errors during printing, make sure to set Windows User Account Control to “Never Notify” first, prior to following the instructions for installation.

Install Workstation Setup – for Sage 100 Standard:

  1. Close other programs.
    • Note: Do not close antivirus, antispyware, and script-blocking software unless it is actually interfering with the installation.
  2. Map a drive letter to a share point that’s at least one folder above the MAS90 folder where the Sage 100 Standard server component is installed.
    • Note:The Workstation Setup wizard will run only properly if it is executed from a mapped drive letter (such as “M:\MAS90\..”). Do not run the Workstation Setup wizard from a UNC path (such as “\\server\sharepoint\MAS90“) or through Network Neighborhood – even if it works, it can result in slower performance compared to using a mapped drive letter.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, browse to the “…\MAS90\Wksetup” folder where Sage 100 is installed.
