Hi there everyone,

I've been using the electronic French to English Le Grand Robert for a few months and am generally happy with it EXCEPT for the "hyperlink button" which sits down on the task bar on the right. It enables you to seach in the dictionary for any highlighted text. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It seems to have a mind of its own. I often end up having to type words into the dictionary search, which obviously takes a bit longer.
I have a suspicion that it is something to do with Vista/authorizations etc. But would welcome any suggestions.

Mark

I have since discovered that it seems to work properly PROVIDED it is opened before any other applications, in particular Word and Trados.
