Installation of the Sage 100 ERP Paperless Office PDF converter to Windows 8 workstations can take a couple of additional steps in case the user has received any type of security-related error messages or warnings. The main priority to try is to run Sage 100 ERP as an administrator. This can be set by right-clicking the Sage 100 ERP shortcut, selecting properties, and then the compatibility tab. Now go to the compatibility tab and select “Run this program as an administrator”. This option needs to be set for all users who share a single system.

In case the security-related issues continue to persist you can still try this fix that consists of a registry edit of the Sage PDF Converter Registry key. However, be sure that you have a system backup before making any registry changes.
