I have T7 on my PC, but there are problems with the wi-fi connections and need it on the lap top too

Apparently this is perfectly possible

So I copied the programme file onto disc and used it to install on the laptop. Went through the wizard set up, accessed the licence file and on to installation. The problem is that there is an endless series of "Couldnt find xxxxxx file", with the options abort, retry (which does nothing) or skip. However I cant have got more than 10% done and I'm continually pressing skip again and again, till I get to the point when I realise this cant be right and I abort. What am I doing wrong?

Program file? Oct 12, 2006

You should load the whole package from Translation Zone, transfer the license file and then unpack and run the installation procedure from scratch. If your net connection does not work and you don't have the original zip-package there is no way, I believe.

Find the original "Installer files".
There should be two of them (one Trados, one MultiTerm).
You may have got rid of them after installation on your PC, but if you've still got them: try these.

(I haven't had to try this myself yet; I hope it works or that someone comes up with the right thing to do. That it should be impossible to install a copy on your laptop is out of the question.)

Excellent, many thanks gentlemen! I'll keep all files in future!
