How to Fix Sage 2014 Upgrade Issue

Update Sage 2013 to Sage 2014

Well I have been using Sage 50 for quite some time and never had come across this problem. When we upgrade to a new version or the latest version because new is always fancy, we are following the trend so that we are not tagged as outdated. More than this, sometimes owing to various important features that are included in the latest version, we are bound to upgrade. Sage 2014 is an upgraded version or the successor of Sage 2013. The version seems to be running quite smooth and flawlessly. The problem arises after a couple of days or a couple of weeks like it happened with me.

I was using the upgraded Sage happily and enjoying every bit of it until it suddenly gave up on me. It started to run unbeatably slow delaying work and hampering efficiency. We tried out a couple of steps to overcome this and hopefully this works out for you too.

  • Verification of the anti-virus: As our first step, we checked to see if the active anti-virus has been configured to exclude folders like ..MAS90, ..Crystal reports. Then we continued to check if the anti-virus has been configured to exclude files like .M4T, .M4P, .RPT, .DDE, .XEQ, .LIB, .UI, .PVC, .PVX and some more of this kind
  • Then we tried disabling all the scanning applications
  • We also disabled Symantec settings
