Register Sage 200

You must register Sage 200 before you can use it. Your licence is activated via the internet using the Sage Licensing Service. To access this service, you must have an active internet connection that is not blocked by firewalls. If you are not connected to the internet, you can generate an offline license request and register via email. .

This is normally done when you install Sage 200, but you can update the registration from System Administration at any time if you purchase additional user licences or additional modules, for example.

To register Sage 200 using the Sage Licensing Service

Open: System Administration > Licence .

  1. Enter the customer Account Number.
  2. Enter the product Serial Number.
  3. Click OK.
  4. The system automatically contacts Sage for a valid licence. This licence enables you to use Sage 200.

To register offline

To register offline, you generate a licence request file which you send to your Sage Support provider via email. You will receive a licence entitlement file which you import to register Sage 200.

  1. In System Administration, right-click Licence.

  2. Enter your Account Number and Serial Number and click Generate Licence Request.

    This creates a licence file in XML format which you send to your Sage Support provider.

  3. Browse to where you want to save the XML file.
  4. Enter a File name and click Save.
  5. Email this XML file to your Sage Support provider.

You will receive an email with your refreshed licence entitlement file attached. This has the extension .ent (Entitlement files). Save this file to your PC.

  1. Open System Administration > Licence.
  2. Right-click and select Import Licence File.

  3. Click Import Licence File and browse to where you saved the ENT file.
