Because this error is generally caused by problems with the operating system, you can run a system restore. You can also use utilities such as Check Disk and System File Checker.

The PERMISS.DAT error occurs when restoring a backup. If the DAT file isn’t available or is damaged, then you need to restore it in order to proceed with the restoration.

Various issues can prevent Sage 50 from responding. You need to run Sage 50 in the correct compatibility mode and with administrative privileges.
