Moving Sage 50 HR v4.0 to a new machine

Hi, We have a legacy Sage HR v4.0 application that I have to move to a new machine. I have taken a backup from the original application, I then downloaded and installed Sage HR on the new machine. My question is if I put my activation key into the new installation and it registers on line will it deactivate the original application. I'm concerned if I can't get the new one working I don't want to disable the original. Thanks in advance.

  • Hello,

    Apologies for the delay in responding to your query.

    The serial number and activation key are not linked to our registration server, so you will be fine to install Sage 50 HR on the new computer and ensure it is working first.

    You would then need to remove Sage 50 HR from the old computer once you have confirmed it is working on the new computer

    Kind Regards
