I have MS Office Professional Edn 2003 and when I try to install the Trados 7 in the Demo Mode, after the installation, when I try to open Word, it refuses to open and it crashes and the message I get is:

Word experienced a serious error the last time the add-in trados7.dot was opened. Would you like to disable this add-in?

Why does this happen? Any help please?

Which Trados do you install? Aug 13, 2006

The latest SDL Trados 2006?
I do not encounter any such problems, so it is a bit strange that you have problems.

Please try the following:
Go to c:\documents and settings\curent user\application data\word\startup (this is the usual path, if you did change it, look there) and delete the Trados7.dot template from there. Now start Word - it should start without any problem.
Close it, go to Trados installation folder and copy the Trados7.dot template from there into Word startup folder.
Start Word again - if you encounter problems, than there must be some incompatibility between ypur Word version and Trados.
Do you have VBA installed? AFAIK this is necessary for Trados.

Regards
Jerzy
