Sage 50 Accounts 2015 (UK) with network share on SBS 2008


Sage 50 Accounts and Small Business Server 2008


Customer has Sage data on the network share. He upgraded Sage Accounts software to 2015, which now requires installing Data Service on the SBS 2008. After installing service I still get the following error on the client's PC:
"Unable to connect to the Sage Data Service on machine <hostname>"


Make sure firewall is not blocking a connection, if that still doesn't work then:

1. Log on to the SBS server
2. Go to Control Panel > Uninstall a program
3. Find "Sage Data Service" on the list and click "Change"
4. Now select "Repair"
