Method #1: After opening the software, check for updates:


Check which product updates or upgrades are available by going to the Help Menu:


The message “You are up-to-date” will show if your machine already has an updated version.


A message response will show if an update is available: “Upgrade is available.” The only thing you need to do now is download and install the update. Once the upgrade has finished downloading, install it. Choose the Install Now option.


Select the install option. Now you must wait for the installation to complete. In the meanwhile, follow all of the on-screen directions that appear.


Select the end button once the installation procedure has completed successfully. Check the box but don’t check it.


Sage 50 2020 will start up immediately. A Sage splash screen will appear, displaying which items have been updated to the latest version.


Method #2: Upgrade the Software Manually

Software may be found in the download folder. Whether it’s there or not:


Choose the Start button, then My Computer. The directory path to follow is as follows: Download Sage Software Simply Accounting from C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Sage Software\Simply Accounting\Download

💠 If you can’t find the appropriate way, go on to the next one.

💠 If you are still unable to see the file, it is likely that there is a problem with the file’s ability to travel to the network. Now, open the.exe file and execute it. Follow the installation wizard’s instructions exactly as they appear on the screen.
