Can't run Sage software
Posted on 2014-07-18
Windows Server 2012R2 Essentials plus Server 2012R2 Application server.
The App server has SQL 2012 and Sage 300 (Accpac) installed.
PC's have Windows 8.1 Pro connected to the domain.
Sage 300 is a 32Bit app installed in Workstation mode. So SQL data on the server. Common shared folder with licenses, user data and so on. The program folder is mapped back to the server using UNC. Folders shared to everyone with full rights.
When I start up Sage 300 it opens ok. But if I select anything from the menu it comes up with the UAC warning.
I say YES I want to allow this to run.
It comes up with security warning "Windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher" etc, etc. The file points back to the OCX on the server.
I have been through many Google suggestions and they all seem to come up with the same solution of making changes to Active-X in the Security settings. I have done this.
I removed the app and installed on the PC as Admin. It seems better if I run as Admin but still comes up with the same error.
I am looking for other suggestions to overcome this or remove the security completely. The network is Isolated (as much as one can isolate) so I am not concerned about Virus/Malware etc.
