Hi everybody,

I have a problem using Workbench 2007 under Windows Vista with Office 2007. From other posts I understand that some people out there were able to put this combination to work, but not me. I installed the 822 build with "Run as administrator" and anti virus software disabled. Trados installed without a flaw (so it seems) but when I start Office 2007:

  • - the Trados ribbon shows asian characters among the normal characters

  • - when I start the workbench (using Run as administrator, otherwise it does not even open a TM) and try to open a translation segment, I get the error message "Translator's Workbench not running"

  • I tried to enable the compatibility mode in Word, I tried to do the same with Trados under "Properties" and I enabled the check box "Run as administrator" for the Workbench (also under "Properties") to see, whether this might change something, but I had no luck.

    Anybody out there who experienced the same problems or has an idea? I'm glad I still have my "trustworthy" WinXP/Trados2006 combo running, but I'm quite dissapointed that Trados/SDL -again- delivered a buggy software...

    Any help is much appreciated.
