SDLX: Error message when updating translation memory

Hello,

I just wanted to update a translation memory, when I got this error message:

"One or more translation memory updates failed. Ensure the database is accessible and not read-only."

I have no idea what might be wrong, since I did exactly the same as yesterday and all the days before. First I thought the TM might have become too big (it was 20MB) and I read the documentation, started Maintain and compacted the TM (now it is 4 MB). But still the same error message occurs. Do you have any idea?

Thank you very much!

Check properties for the TM-file Mar 10, 2009

Have you checked the properties for the .mdb-file?

If not:
Right-click on the file in Explorer.
1) General: Not write protected, -> Advanced: Not compressed (by MS)
2) Security: Full privileges

Have you tested with another TM-file? If not, create one, and see if its a general problem with the TM-update or if its a problem only occurring when using this specific "problem"-file.

Properties are ok, updating does not work even with brand new TM Mar 10, 2009

Hello Ulf,
Thank you very much for your answer and your suggestions.
I checked the properties, but everything is ok.
Then I tested with another TM, which I created for that purpose, but the updating still did not work and the same error message was shown.

The same problem Oct 1, 2011

Hello,

sorry to bring up this topic after such a long time, but I have exactly the same problem ("One or more translation memory updates failed. Ensure the database is accessible and not read-only.")

Has this problem been solved?

Thanks in advance

Well, after saving the file, closing and restarting the program and the TM several times, etc., everything seems to be working fine. Must have been some bug.
