Dear all:

this is amazing. My Workbench keeps changing into Demo Mode whenever it wants. Of course always in the middle of a big proyect (according to Murphy's law).
I have to uninstall the whole programm, delete the Registration Files (Go to Start -> Run -> regedit -> Ok
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE and delete Trados
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and delete Trados), install it again, show the programm the path to the licence and register it. And then it works... for a few days. It seems like being connected to Wireless in a public library changes the registration parameters and make my licence invalid. Workbench knows the path perfectly to licence, the licence is the correct one, the product has been bought legally (though I know regret it)...everything is correct, but it does not work!!!
Any clue??
Thank you guys.

Other Freelance users in the same network? Mar 22, 2006

Hi Francisco,
First of all, have you contacted Trados Support? Given that the vast majority of soft license users doesn't have a problem, the problem might, in fact, be related to your system.

It seems like being connected to Wireless in a public library changes the registration parameters and make my licence invalid.

Does the problem persist when you disconnect from the WLAN?

Note the restriction applicable to Freelance versions (as outlined on TranslationZone):

SDL Trados 2006 Freelance is designed to work in a single user environment and thus only one instance can run on a network at any one time. SDL Trados 2006 Professional is required in order to share translation memories on internal networks (LAN) and provide multiple users the ability to simultaneously work on a network and have access to the same translation memories.

When Trados Freelance detects more than one Freelance instance in the same network, it will switch to demo. Could it be that someone else is using Trados on the same network?

On a personal note, as much as I can understand your frustration about software problems (having been there myself), this doesn't exactly get your problem solved.

Best regards,
Ralf

Thanks Mar 22, 2006

Hi,

I think you might be right. Since this is the Translation Faculty Library in Barcelona, probably there will be more people using Trados. I had not though about it. As soon as I get the licence I will check what you propose. Thank you. I tell you in a while.

You were right! Mar 23, 2006

I have double checked it and there is another translator in the library working with Trados.
Now the problem is solved!

Thank you very much!
