After reinstalling SDL Trados 2007, I am now checking every feature works fine. And I have found that Trados works perfectly, but SDLX does not.
On top of he window SDLX Switchboard appears "SDLX: [no server]".
You have no SDLX server, I suppose
It's normal, don't worry.
SDL promotes a centralized, server based translation management, if you're connected to a server, the server name is displayed.
The message displayed in the stand alone mode may be confusing when you see it for the first time but all is OK.
Then after converting a .doc file to the .itd file, I can't see the file on the two columns to start translating.
It happens sometimes.
Just apply a TM (SDL Edit, Translation Memory, Apply), you should see the grid.
I can't either use the Help feature because a message says it cannot be executed.
SDLX still uses the legacy help format.
The support for the HLP files was dropped in Vista.
You can add it manually.
For security reasons, some help macros were disabled in Win XP SP2, as I remember, so you may have this kind of message but it doesn't affect the essential help functionnalities.
Imagine the mess the SDL programmers have.
They are simply unaware the files they provide simply don't work out of the box on a plain vanilla Vista.
Vista was released on November 2006...
What can I do? Is there a problem with reinstallation?
I don't think so.
