To clear this error, please do the following:

  1. Open your PC's Task Manager, select More details if it is showing the minimised view, and click on the Processes tab.

  2. Click on OCRex.Desktop.AutoEntry.Client & AutoEntry.Service.

  3. Select End Task on both.

Once an invoice successfully publishes to Sage 50, the error will clear!
