Hello all,
Does anyone know of problems with Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Trados, SDLX, Transit, and Dragon (lumping it in even though it is not a CAT tool)?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

Hi Sonya,

I haven't had any problems with either Trados WB (Build 439)/MultiTermiX (Build 267) or DVX 7.0.273 on XP Pro with SP2.

You might want to check out the Yahoo group archives for the tools that interest you:



as well as the other groups for SDLX, Wordfast etc.

For a while, XP SP2 was the prime suspect for all sorts of problems but AFAIR, in most cases it turned out not to be responsible. I had one or two minor problems installing SP2, but my CAT tools seemed to like it once it was up and running.

I haven´t check SDLX since, but Trados and Trados 3 and Transit Satellite PE 3.0 are working smoothly and without any problems.

No problems with other programs, however I do not have any voice recognition software. But antivirus, firewall, DVD/CD burning, zipping and so on are not disturbed in any way.
