We’ve learned some things about FR50 Version 8 and the installation process that we thought you should be aware of.
First and foremost: When you install the software, Fundraising 50 will create a folder in which the databases and its log file (paradigm.db and paradigm.log) are stored. The default location is: C:\Sage Fundraising 50 Databases – For most people, these files used to live in the same folder as the program, but they no longer can (I won’t bore you with the details, but know that it has to do with Vista compatibility).
Potential Consequences of this Change
You will want to make a note of this change for your IT support team. It can affect the way that they perform any automated backups, i.e. they will need to change them or the backups WON’T be automated!!!
