Sage 200 64-bit

When are we going to get Sage 200 as a 64 bit app? There have been plenty of requests for the Sage BI and Outlook integration to support 64-bit but the truth is, the core product needs to be 64 bit. The latest Microsoft Visual Studio version 2022 is now 64 bit and as a result, even developing in VS 2022for Sage 200 is becoming difficult as the form designer in VS 2022 does not work correctly with 32 bit forms - a known issue that Microsoft are yet to fix !! Its not going to get any easier unless Sage switches to 64 bit as well. Come on everyone - lets push this so that it finally happens !!!

    I couldn't agree more.

    The default installation for Office 365 is 64 bit, anyone developing any form of reporting in Excel would absolutely benefit from the additional capabilities that a 64-bit version of Excel offers.


    Even if it's just having the option to install either version, this would be better than the limitations we have now.

    64-bit Excel is a no-brainer for Finance departments, so financial organisations of all people should be well ahead of the curve to cater for 64-bit. We shouldn't have to revert to 32-bit just to make an add-in work. 64-bit has been here for years and years.

    This is definitely needed! We recently switched our Microsoft packages as an organisation to 64-bit and now we can't create the invoices and remittances we used to produce and send in outlook from Sage, such a pain!

    Thanks for the comment Richard, if you note the categorisation of the idea is its under install rather than reporting. If customers want this, then we need to understand the demand.

    This is genuinely essential to the future of Sage 200 and shouldn't be in a vote with better ways to post receipts etc. Everyone needs to vote and get this circulated around their businesses.
