Windows 10, Is it Sage 100 Compatible?

Christopher Esselborn - Monday, July 27, 2015


      Windows 10

      In less than a day, Microsoft is set to release their latest operating system release, Microsoft Windows 10.  The new version is a hybrid of legacy and Windows 8 features and is being advertised as Free for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, but before investing in a Windows 10 operating system or new computers with Windows 10, you should consider the following.

      •    • Sage has not yet tested the Windows 10 software so we are unable to determine Sage 100’s compatibility with Microsoft's new OS.

      •    • Sage will officially certify the product, but this usually occurs after the product has had some time with the general public so that any ‘buggy’ issues are ironed out.

      •    • Older versions of AutomatedService (prior to v.2014) will not be compatible with Windows 10

      We advise, in the meantime, that all users continue to use Windows 7 or 8 and to also stay tuned. Ascent Business Systems will keep you updated on the compatibility of Sage 100 with Windows 10. Its simple, either visit our news web page or continue to follow this blog.
