Hello I have Trados 7 and Word 2003 and Windows Vista and when I try to open a segment in word it appears a windows "Workbench is not running” …I disabled my firewall because it happened to me that before that it was the firewall which blocked the workbench ….but it does not work either ….what is more when I try to open TagEditor, it automatically closes...I have installed it and uninstall it many time, but it does not work.
I thank you very much any help

Regards
Silvia gentili

Trados 7 is NOT supposed to run with Vista Jul 9, 2007

Only the latest version (SDL Trados 2007 or Trados 8) supports Vista. SDL states clearly, that you cannot expect earlier versions to run smoothly with Vista - no wonder, because as they were released Vista was still an unborn baby.
I'm afraid there is no better help for you than to upgrade to the latest version of Trados.
The fact, that some people were indeed able to run Trados 7 on Vista does not help really, because this is not supported by the producer.
This is as would you try to drive a diesel car with gas - it might work, though the manufacturer will certainly reject any claims for possible damage.

Regards
Jerzy

Maybe it's an obvious question, but... Jul 9, 2007

Are you sure you have Workbench open (that is, executing) before using the button/key combination for "Open TU"?

Or do you mean that Word/TagEditor does not detect that Workbench is running?

Regards.

Workbench is not running Jul 9, 2007

In fact I have SDL Trados 2007 and I have been already working with this Trados in Vista OS, this started to happen 2 days ago ....
Well, Narcis when I try open TagEditor, there appears a windows that says "TagEditor does not detect Workbench running", and then if I want to open a segment in Word, of course with the Workbench window opened, a windows pops up telling Workbench is not running ..

Workbench is not running Jun 28, 2011

Once I found myself in a similar situation.
I found out that nothing like changing the sequence of starting Word and Workbench and even restarting the computer helps. But one thing does:
I closed all Word documents and started Word clicking its shortcut on the desktop.
In the new file a typed a string of characters and opend a segment. It worked.
And after that it worked in all other documents too.
