    Accepted Solution

    It'll work fine on Windows 7
    Officially not supported by Sage but it does and will work

    We're a Sage BP and have it Sage 50 V12 running on client sites and in house on Windows 7

    You're 6 versions behind though now so good idea to upgrade if you can - current version is Sage 50 2012 (v18)

    There should be no problems, if you have it running under Vista then the permissions issues with Sage wanting Access to the installation directory must already have been resolved, either you have granted permissions or you have installed outside of the program files directory.

    Permissions might be reset so you might have to reapply if not installed outside the program files directory.

    Also assuming upgrade is not 32bit to 64bit

    I would do a real life test on a single workstation before rolling out en masse.

    Worst case scenario it is just a matter of un-installing and reinstalling.
