Tax form updates in Sage 50: Issues based on their installation

Usually, the SAGE 50 updates are installed quickly and effectively. However, if there is a problem in installing it, wait for some time before checking for the error.  The Sage team has warned about the time related to installation processes time and again. Since Aatrix requires three different Microsoft redistributables, they will be installed during an automated update.

If a run-time error comes up with the message saying the update is not installed, then the problem may be due to the absence of the Microsoft C++Redistributables, such as the 2012 update 4, 2013 update 5 and 2017.

When the error occurs, wait for some time for it to disappear and run the update for it to complete. However, if you have closed the automatic update, it will not appear again. You need to then update the tax table manually.
