Sage Installation Manager CLIENT programs


Sage Installation Manager CLIENT programs is a software program developed by Sage Software.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 612 KB (626,688 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP.
