Sage Line 50 – Windows 10 error: Unable to register datasource
After reinstalling Windows on to my PC I noticed that I could not get Sage Line 50 2009 accounting software to load up sample or company data files.
After searching I found that there is an issue related to the Windows 10 Anniversary updates. The fix is simple luckily, head over to Ask Sage and download the fix here.
