Guidance on how to register your Sage Pastel software.

(Guide for Pastel Partner 14, but older versions will loosely follow the same method).


Please ensure your registered machine / server has been registered prior to attempting registration of a workstation.

Click Here for instructions on how to register your registered machine / server.


Before you register your machine as a workstation, it is crucial to share the PastelXX folder on the registered server machine to all users (or the individual users of Pastel).

Then you will need to map a network drive to the shared PastelXX folder.

If you are not sure how to do this on your computer, please speak to your IT / Network support or give us a call for assistance.

You can find some instructions and information on mapping a network driver here.
