What does an "encrypted information could not be read" error mean in Sage 50?
"Encrypted information could not be read or written because a data file is missing or damaged. Call Technical Support for assistance".
This error occurs when trying to access a stored credit card number.
Please follow these steps to isolate the cause of the error:
- Go to 'MAINTAIN/CUSTOMERS' and, without selecting a customer record, click on the 'CREDIT and PAYMENTS' tab (please make sure the Customer ID is blank).
- Click the 'CREDITS AND PAYMENTS' tab.
- See if the 'VIEW/EDIT CC INFO' option works with the blank record.
If it works on a blank record, but not on an existing customer, it indicates that the credit card was stored under a different Merchant ID and Merchant Key. Please contact Paya at 1-877-470-4001 for assistance.
If it does not work on a blank record, it typically indicates that a program file -- KMSKeys.XML -- is either damaged or absent. Please contact Sage 50 at 1-866-747-3888 for assistance.
