Sage 50accounts 23 (I don't know how to add a new version to ITNinja's database)

Here's my sciprt for installing Sage 50accounts version 23. Which fortunately comes with a lot of .MSI's and I only had to create 2 custom .MSI's using AppDeploy Repackager to Update and Apply a licence. Which were both pretty straightforward to do.
Oly tricky bit really was the AutoUpdate service preventing this being unnattended. To get round this, the script stops the AutoUpdate service and kills the AutoUpdateClient. Hope this is a help to someone.

 msiexec /i "%~dp0Install\Sage 50 Accounts v23.msi" /qb-
 NET STOP "Sage AutoUpdate Manager Service"
 NET STOP "Sage AutoUpdate Manager Service v2"
 taskkill /IM AutoUpdateClient* /F
 msiexec /i "%~dp0Install\Sage 50 Accounts Service v23.msi" /qb-
 msiexec /i "%~dp0ODBC Install\64Bit\Setup.msi" /qb-
 msiexec /i "%~dp0Server-Side Reporting\Sage.Central.ReportDesigner.SSR.Installer.msi" /qb-
 msiexec /i "%~dp0Support\ExcelIntReportingInstaller.msi" /qb-
 msiexec /i "%~dp0USW\Sage Application Patcher.msi" /qb-
 msiexec /i "%~dp0USW\Sage 50 Accounts licence.msi" /qb-
 timeout /t 10

  • Click here http://www.itninja.com/software/sage-uk/sage-1/22-31/windows#tips and then search for "Add Version" on the page. You should be able to add a new version.
  • Hi, thanks for this i've been having real problems with Sage 50 Accounts v23. Can I ask how you made the update & licence msi's?
    • I used the good old appdeploy repackager from: http://www.itninja.com/community/dell-kace-appdeploy-repackager
      to record changes and create custom .msi files.
  • One thing to note, is that once deployed out, you will probably need to ensure that the software is started and activated on first use within 30days.
  • Ok I have created a licence msi using appdeploy repackager but struggling with the update. What did you use as the exe to kick off the update? Thanks
    • Anything will do, notepad.exe, cmd.exe... something simple that doesn't make changes.
  • Sorry i'm probably being a bit dumb here! What I mean is I can't find what to run to start the update process. For the licence I just opened Sage, entered the licence then stopped monitoring.
    I did try keep monitoring going and let Sage do the autoupdate but appdeploy just doesn't finish comparing changes and I left it over an hour.
    • Ah right. Try capturing changes made of:
      "c:\Program Files (x86)\Sage\Accounts\Sage50AutoUpdater.exe"
  • hmm yeah that's what I had presumed but that exe doesn't seem to do anything, even running as admin
  • Ok well i managed to grab the update exe from the temp files when running the auto update and used that to create my own msi.
    Finally it's all working, massive thanks for your help and script :-)
