Version conflicts of Trados 6.5 and Trados 7.0 when using Tag editor??

I have version 6.5 on my system and I receintly purchased the upgrade version as well. I now have both the versions installed on my system. Versions 6.5 runs with the dongle while version 7.0 with the soft key.
I was using the Tag editor (version 6.5) for translation of a text prepared in the same version. I was instructed to activate the Generic tag verifier plug-in (Tools>Plug-ins>Verifier)before commencing work. With version 6.5, I saw a mesage saying that "plug-in cannot be installed and wil have to be disabled."
However when I tried the same using Tag editor 7.0, I did not notice any such message. Is Trados 6.5 not functioning normally because the higher version has been installed on the same system??

I need to do this in version 6.5 because the client has version 6.5 and doing the translation in version 7.0 would probably result in problems at his end when I submit my work. What could the CATCH be??

Using different versions of Trados in parallel Aug 16, 2005

Hi roak,
This is exactly why using several versions in parallel is not recommended (although possible).

Check Trados KB Article 1183 for the procedure to be adhered to.

HTH, Ralf
