.dll not found though present on my HDD

I have downloaded and properly installed the latest build 441. Until then, I have only used TWB with Word and had no problem.

Today, when I try to open TagEditor or WinAlign, I get the error message "TradosFilterFrameworkJavaApi.dll not found". I performed a search on my HDD and found this very dll in the TT folder of Trados program files.

I thought it might be related to the fact that I forgot to register, so I tried to register but got the same error message after a while (actually after the message "Registering the Filter Framework...").

The Trados KB shows no relevant match for this particular dll.

Any hint ?

Many thanks in advance!

Pragmatic approach Apr 8, 2005

My suggestion is you bomb the whole Trados package from your HDD entirely (uninstall, in more civilian terms ) and then re-install from scratch.

Aactually fixing the individual DLL problems is often more tedious and time-consuming than just starting over with the installation.

Oh, and be sure to use the correct version of each update, i.e. don't mix Freelance and LSP installations, if that is at all possible.

Did you install Framework too? Apr 8, 2005

Maybe this issue is connected with this.
When installing the latest Trados I was akesd to install MS Framework too, what I actually did.

If you didn´t I would try to reinstall Trados without deinstalling it first.
Should that not help, simply follow Benjamins advice - this should then help.
