Hi,

I am currently working on a translation and when I tried to start Trados today a message appeared: "Failed to initialize the application". What does this mean? Is there something wrong with my computer or do I need a new license code?

That is indeed the name of the product. However, as far as I know there is no such application, which makes your question ambiguous. I assume this is what Ralf meant.

Examples of Trados applications and version numbers include TagEditor 8.0.0.826, Translator's Workbench 8.0.0.826, and WinAlign 8.0.0.826.

Does not start at all Aug 20, 2008

When I try to start SDL Trados this error message appears. I'm not able to start Trados in any form. I have been in contact with Trados and they say it a problem with my Windows registry. I have clicked on Use administrator rights because it seemed it was not activated althoguh I use my home computer and this has never occurred before. I don't know what this means and what I can do. Trados will send me a new activation code and I will try that.

I guess you really have an application by that name then. I do not, but anyway, I keep my fingers crossed that someone will be able to help.

Application? Aug 20, 2008

The name of my application is SDL Trados 2007 and this does not start at all when I click on it, an error message appears "Failure initializing the application". When I go to the "registry" it says I do not have administrator rights but when I click use administrator rights that does not help. It seems noone has heard of this problem. Trados refer it to a Windows registry problem but how os that solved?

Windows problem? Aug 20, 2008

I see now that this message appears also when I reboot the computer, so it does not have to do with Trados. I guess I will have to contact a computer technician now:-)
