When I try to open translator's workbench, I get this message:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Buffer overrun detected
Programm: ... files/SDL International/t2006_fl/tt/tw4win.exe.
A buffer overrun has been dectected which has corrupted the program's interna state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must be terminated.

Any suggestions? Thank you

Hello Massimo,

The problem may be that your folder structure is too deep. Please try copying your Translation Memory to your desktop and then try again.

If this fixes the problem then please try shortening your original folder structure.

I hope this helps.

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell
