sage50 and Windows 7

Problem: sage50 installation fails on Windows 7
Reason: If you start the setup.exe on the DVD, the installation starts with the installation of pervasive database engine before installing sage50.
Solution: Go to the DVD, copy the complete pervasive directory to you local disc. Search the directory for a file called ptksetup.ini then search for the following row:

;PVSW_PSQL_INSTALL_XIO=1

replace 1 by 0 and remove the semicolon in front

PVSW_PSQL_INSTALL_XIO=0

then run the Installation of the pervasive database server out of the directory that you copied earlier.
after the installation is finished, go to the DVD again and start setup.exe. The installation will then work and the program can be used without any problems.

Have fun!
