Dear fellw translators,

I am a bit upset/frustrated really, since - once again - I am about losing a very interesting and lucrative job assignment due to repeated "licensing" problems.

I have Trados Freelance 2007 and a node-locked license. When trying to open Workbench, the error notification "An error occurred while trying to verify the license. Please check the installation and try again. Translator's Workbench will now close."
Well, after de- and re-installing a thousand times, entering the activation code a.s.o. the problem couldn't be fixed.

I am frustrated, since the same problem occurred in my 2006 version and it took me a long time and the help of another translator, who sent me the TW4win patch, to solve the problem. However, the patch won't help with the 2007 version.

Does anyone by any chance have the appropriate patch, in case such a thing exists?
