    "Can I install a standalone version on several computers?" 

    No, as it will constitutes a breach of the license agreement. Also, you will have problems registering or installing the product. 

    Return to Top of Page 


    "How can I indentify Standalone version versus a multi-user value pack?"

Secondly, you should be able to find a label on the value pack clearly tells you this is "Value Pack, Multi-user Functionality up-to 5 users." Also, there will be slight difference in the serial number. 

    Return to Top of Page 


    "My company has several computers, which product is cheaper?" 

    If you have 2 or 3 computers, you may buy a copy of "Sage 50 Peachtree Complete" for each computer. However, if you have 3 or more computers connected in a network, the "Sage 50 Peachtree Complete Value Pack" will be the best choice. 

    Return to Top of Page 


    "Which Sage 50 Peachtree product is right for me?" 

    It mainly depends on your requirement and budget. As each Sage 50 Peachtree product has some feature differences, you will find it helpful to check the Sage 50 Peachtree Accounting product comparison chart

    If you plan to have several users concurrently access the same Sage 50 Peachtree data, your only option is Sage 50 Peachtree Complete Acccounting. If you have 3 or more workstations accessing Sage 50 Peachtree on a network, the best choice would be Sage 50 Peachtree Complete Accounting ( multi-user ) value pack. 

    Return to Top of Page 


    "What is 'Multi-user Value Pack'?" 

    Sage 50 Peachtree Complete Accounting Multi-user Value Pack actually is the "multi-user" license, that allows you to run Sage 50 Peachtree on an unlimited number of workstations within a local area network. That is why value pack is more expensive but most cost effective option. The retail stores sell single-user only, which will not work in a multi-user environment.
