Adept Tools Menu

This free program extends Sage 50's Sage Additions menu when you have more than ten additions.

  • Access all your Adept Sage 50 add-ons from one easy to use menu.
  • The menu is popped up by by clicking a single entry in Sage's Sage Additions menu.
  • Automatically populates itself from the menu entries in Sage's configuration file.
  • Menu entries are longer and more user friendly than the entries in Sage's Sage Additions menu.
  • Automatically repairs some common problems with Sage's configuration file.
  • Does not have the same 10 button limit that Sage's additions menu has.
  • Works around the New Sage 50 v21+ additions button bug.
  • Licensed as Freeware. Use it on as many of your company's computers as you like.
  • Compatible with all versions of Sage 50 and Instant.

To Install the Program from the Internet

You must be logged on to Windows with a user name that has Windows Administrator rights to install this program. As with any program installation, you should close all other programs before performing the installation.

Download the installation program Line50am-v25-0-9.exe to a suitable folder on your PC. On Windows XP double click it to start the installation process. If you are on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or Vista you should right click the installation program and select "Run as Administrator" from the menu that pops up. Follow the on screen instructions selecting the default option (just hit the Enter key) whenever you are given a choice (unless you have a good reason not to).

If the installation detects that your system already has a more up to date version of one of the files that it is installing it will stop with a message that tells you this. You should select the default option, which is to NOT replace your existing file, by just pressing Enter.

Run the program for the first time from the Windows Start Button / All Programs / Adept ToolsMenu. The End User Licence Agreement (EULA) will be shown and you should tick the box to agree to it. The menu will be built from data in the SAGE.INI cofiguration file and an "Adept Tools Menu" button will be added to the Sage tool bars.

To use the Program

To open the menu from New Sage 50 v21+ select the VAT module and then click the Adept Tools Menu icon on the horizontal tool bar.

To open the menu from Sage 50 2014 v20 and earlier versions select the Sage Additions section of the stacked tool bar and then click on Adept Tools Menu

Click on the menu option for the required add-on to run it. The menu will close automatically.

To close the menu without selecting a menu option click the X in the top right corner.

To refresh the menu right click where it says Adept Tools Menu.
