Trados KB Feb 26, 2005

Hi Antonin,
I found a few articles in the Trados Knowledge Base, which might be relevant:

support.trados.com/view.asp?cntID=1245
support.trados.com/view.asp?cntID=1371

With PowerPoint: (80005): Connection with server application error. File or assembly name System.Xml, or one of tis dependencies, was not found.

Not 100% the same description, but anyway:
support.trados.com/view.asp?cntID=1449

One more thing you may want to try is to (re-)register Trados (Start - Programs - Trados 6.5 - Register Trados 6.5).

Let us know if these help; otherwise, I'll notify Trados support of this.

Best regards,
Ralf

no success Mar 6, 2005

I have run the correction of the Office installation as recommended; I uninstalled Trados completely, re-inastalled it and installed the August 2004 patch, but the problem recurs. I refer to my desktop here.

I believe if I reinstalled the system it would help, but I currently have no time for such an "adventure."

When I push the dongle in the laptop, the feature works, so if I have to do it, I sort of can (but the screen is smaller, so I would like to be able to use it on the desktop). I have tried to compare the Trados folders in Program Files and the registry settings on both machines, but I have not been able to find any substantial differences.

Any more advice?

Antonin

Microsoft.NET is the answer Apr 27, 2005

I corrected the error after downloading and installing Microsoft.NET

Just in case someone has the same problem...

80005 Error Dec 29, 2007

I had a problem with opening of some Word files in TagEditor. (80005 Unexpected error with opening the file). The solution seems to be very simple. TagEditor doesn't support the Arial font. If you have this problem it is very likely that the file you want to open contains text in Arial. It is enough to open the file in Word, change the font and it should work. In my case this solution works perfectly. If by any chance it doesn't work please also see this:

Good luck
Pawel

TagEditor *does* support Arial Dec 29, 2007

Pawel,
TagEditor doesn't support the Arial font.

Just to prevent misunderstandings: TagEditor does support Arial - problems may arise when Arial is missing from the source/target font lists.

Best regards,
Ralf

Arial font Dec 31, 2007

Ralf,

You are right, of course. Anyway, I think many people even don't know that 80005 is a font related error and in many cases it's enough to change the font (if it is possible) to solve the problem.
Happy New Year,
Pawel
