Installing the Sage 100 ERP Paperless Office PDF converter to Windows 8 workstations may take a few additional steps if you receive any type of security related error messages or warnings.
The first thing to try is to run Sage 100 ERP as an administrator. Set this by right clicking the Sage 100 ERP shortcut, selecting properties and then the compatibility tab. Within the compatibility tab select “Run this program as administrator”. This option will have to be set for all users who share a single computer.
