Compatibility Issues

For clients using SAGE Accounting software (Peachtree, DacEasy, et al), please note that some versions of Pervasive SQL used by these applications are incompatible with Microsoft SQL Server 2012. We therefore do not recommend that Microsoft SQL Server 2012 be installed on the same server as your Accounting application.

Clients may opt for either of the following solutions:

  1. A dedicated PC to be used as the payroll server.
  2. On the existing network server, install Windows Virtual PC (use Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or higher) to facilitate the Microsoft SQL installation.

Windows Virtual PC can be found at this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3702
