How can you troubleshoot Sage 50 Error Code 1628?

Troubleshooting the error can take place in many ways but in order to do it in the most secure way, it is preferable to uninstall the program related to the sage error 1628 and then reinstall a fresh version. It’s better to clean up the path so that there are no issues with reinstalling the program. Here’s what needs to be done:

  • Scan the entire system for virus and/or malware and remove them if these are present in the system
  • All the junk and/or temporary files and folders should be deleted from the system
  • The device drivers of the system will need to be updated
  • Recent changes in the system will have to be reversed (Undone)
  • Check all Windows files by running the file checker and ensure that system updates are installed
  • Open the Control Panel and choose Programs and go to ‘Programs’ and ‘Features’
  • Find the program related to the error in the Name column

    Next, the re-installation process would have to be completed and for that, the following steps should be followed:

Windows registry is critical

Issues with uninstalling Sage 50 HR may come up and thereafter, trying to reinstall the software becomes problematic as it picks up the current Sage 50 HR key in the registry. That’s when the message to ‘Repair’ or ‘Remove’ the old installation appears. The way to overcome this obstacle is to make the amendment to the registry key before proceeding to install the program once again. Incorrect use of Registry Editor could result in more serious issues with the system and may affect the Windows OS. This will mean reinstallation of OS to rectify the problem. In such a situation Sage won’t function as the problem relates to the use of Registry Editor which is beyond its scope.
