Sage Drive Issue

A customer recently called with an issue they were having with Sage 50 Accounts.

When they would fire up the application it would give the following error: "An error has been encountered with your Sage ID", as shown below:


Unfortunately, hitting "Retry" did not allow the correct Sage Drive credentials to be entered.
A phone call to a nice fella in Sage support yielded the following:

The gist of it is:
  • Stop 2 x Sage Accounts services
  • Delete a folder called "Collaborate" which is buried down in subfolders of Windows
  • Start the 2 x services, and then 
  • Launch Sage
You will then be able to enter the correct Sage Drive credentials and all should be well with the world.
