Pop Up


I have a problem...

I download 2018 sage 50 in my laptop and when I load into a zip file, there is a pop up saying "A required data file is missing. Check your data directory to be sure the files are there".

I still can't figure it out and tried downloading in my PC.

And still same thing happened.

Is there anything i can do to make this work?

Thank you,

The .zip will need to include both a .sai file and .saj folder.  Here's some resources on:
