Depending on your purchase agreement, some features described here may not be available in your product.

Microsoft .NET Framework Update

Sage 300 and Sage 300c 2017 require Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2. If you have not installed .NET Framework 4.6.2, you will be prompted to install it during installation of this product update, and you will need to restart your computer after installation is complete.

Upgrading to Later Versions

Important!

To avoid possible data corruption issues, if you upgrade to a later version of Sage 300 or Sage 300c, you must install all released product updates for that version before activating your data.

If you use Sage 300c web screens, you must also:

  1. Activate data for all company databases that use the same system database before signing in to web screens.
  2. Run IISRESET as the Windows administrator user.

Compatibility with Sage Programs

For a complete list of compatible programs, database platforms, and operating systems, see the Sage 300 2017 Compatibility Guide in the Sage Knowledgebase.

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Sage 300 Anonymizer

The GDPR is a set of laws that comes into force on May 25, 2018. The GDPR applies to you if you process or hold the personal data of people residing in the European Union, even if your company is located outside the EU.

In some situations, the GDPR may legally require you to stop holding personal data for an individual. In part, this means removing a customer or vendor’s personal data (such as their name and address) from Sage 300. A new tool—Sage 300 Anonymizer—helps you do this. To download Sage 300 Anonymizer and learn more about using it, see Knowledgebase article 88838.

Payroll Cheque Exporter for Canadian Payroll

A new Payroll Cheque Exporter tool lets you export data from payroll cheques. The data is exported to a file that you can open in Microsoft Excel to analyze payroll history (for example, to help determine vacation/holiday pay). To download the Payroll Cheque Exporter and learn more about it, see Knowledgebase article 90019.
