Installing Sage 50 on a Network Computer using Network Installation Manager

  1. Once you have finished installing Sage 50 on the server computer, you’ll be provided with options on the summary screen to use network manager to install Sage 50 on remaining computers.
  2. Check the option box and click Install.
  3. Your Sage 50 software will be installed on the network server.
  4. In the background Sage will also create a copy of the installation files on a shared folder on the server.
  5. In addition to the installation files, Sage will also add a client installation file that will help automate the installation process on each network computer.
  6. At the end of the process, you will receive a text file that will contain the location of the installation folder on the server along with the instructions on how to use it to install Sage 50 on other workstations.
  7. Since the installation file has been copied on the server, you would no longer need the installation CD to perform Sage 50 installation.
  8. Now from the next workstation, open the folder where Sage 50 installation file has been saved and run the client installation file.
  9. Click Install and the Network Installation Manager will do the rest for you. It will download, install, and upgrade Sage 50 software on this computer on the basis of settings defined by the server installation. These include:
    • The location of the setup files
    • The location of the data path
    • The location of the company data folder
    • The serial number of the product, required for installation and registration
