Hi all,
After a few weeks' break from MultiTerm I wanted to input some terms, but MultiTerm won't let me.
The first three times I got the message "Undefined ist null oder kein Objekt" (Internet Explorer Skriptfehler"; as I use Firefox as my default browser I tried running IE in the background to see whether it would make a difference and now the error message is "null" and when I click on "OK", I get "java.lang.NullPointerException".

Googling the error messages did not return any useful workarounds.

This has never happened before. There is no problem reading existing entries.

Can anyone help? I am using SDL MT 7.5.0.444 Build 448 on Windows XP.

TIA
Karin

Java? Mar 31, 2009

Could be that Java has updated to a version that is not compatible with MT.

You might want to try Jerzy's solution (with a German screenshot!):

Superb! Mar 31, 2009

Thanks Giles for the link! Unchecking the box and restarting Firefox and MT solved the problem. I just hope other applications won't be affected by the intervention - we'll see.

Thanks also to Jerzy for the original solution!
