Will Sage Pro run on Windows 8?
SAGE Pro 7.5 configured to run a PEER TO PEER Windows 8.1 network with 5 Windows 8.1 64 PCs.
I recently moved a Sage Pro 7.5 5 user system from a Windows network running Windows XP workstations to a Windows 8.1 Peer to Peer home group. I then upgraded the Sage Pro 7.5 system to Sage Pro 7.7. One of the challenges was that the SAGE Pro upgrader Demo Shield does not recognize “map drives” on the server if you are on the Server. When you run the upgrade, the “S” drive does not show if it is a network “Share” with Windows 8.1 I found out that you can Mount a Virtual Hard Drive (VHD) on the server as “s” drive, copy Pro from “mapped S” to the VHD. Then mount the VHD as “s”. then everything WORKS!! Beautiful thing this VHD feature.Tags: Environment, How To's
