Hi there!
I have just bought SDL Trados 2007 with a Group of Buyers, but I still can't open WinAlign. As I try to do it there is a message saying "C:\\Documents and Settings\All users\Dati applicazioni\SDL International\Filters\PluginFileFilterDefinitions.xml could not be located".
A similar message is displayed when I open "Filter settings".
What does that mean? Maybe I did something wrong when installing the software. I've got no clue at this point.
Anyway I believe that WinAlign is included in SDL's licence, isn't it?
Thanks for any suggestion.

Have you searched for that file? Aug 1, 2007

Salve Andrea.

Have you tried to search for that "PluginFileFilterDefinitions.xml" file in the CD-ROM (or download folder)?

If you find it and you copy it into the \Filters folder, that would solve your problem, I think.

Just in case, the searching procedure is:
- Go to the unit or folder where you have the software,
- Right-click on it
- Select "Search..." (or maybe it is "Find...", I'm not sure because my OS is in Spanish)
- Type the name and the extension of the "PluginFileFilterDefinitions.xml" file
- Click the "Search" button

I hope this helps.
