I have been looking through the forums but have not found a problem identical to the one I am suffering from at the moment.

I am using the latest version of SDL Trados 2007 with SP2. My computer runs MS Office 2007 on a Windows Vista platform.

I cannot translate Word files with Workbench or Tageditor. The machine crashes, giving the following message:

Run-time error '2147221008 (800-401f0)

DataObject: PutInClipboard CoInitialize has not been called.

I have searched the net for a solution to this problem, which has occurred with increasing frequency and is now permanent.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've also encountered the same problem and can't figure out what may have gone wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
