Hi, everybody
I have been using SDL TRADOS 2006 on VISTA+OFFICE 2003 for months perfectly and it’s so fast:)))

STEPS:

1. Logon with administrator mode : First you'll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing "Run as administrator". Now type the following command:
net user administrator /active:yes Logout and you should see an "Administrator" account available. Un-doing the tweak requires running nearly the same command, but with /active:no at the end.
2. turn off UAC and vista firewall
3. right click trados setup.exe and select properties
4. click ‘’Compatibility’’ tab
5. select ‘’ Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows Xp (Service Pack 2)’’ click OK
6. again, right click setup.exe and ‘’Run as administrator’’
7. install trados
8. now, open SDL INTERNATIONAL installation folder C:\Program Files\SDL INTERNATIONAL and you need to make same process as in 3, 4 and 5 steps (select '’ Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows Xp (Service Pack 2)’’ click OK) for all trados applications.( tageditor, winalign, tw4win, multiterm, licenseconsole, flexlm, lmtools, lmborrow,...all of them.)
9. allow to communicate in the Vista Firewall for all trados applications and now If you want, you can turn on Vista Firewall (DON’T OPEN ‘’UAC’’!!).
10. now you can logon with your user account and you need to repeat that steps 8 and 9 again.

THATS ALL:))) ENJOY!!!

Thank you for sharing Mar 12, 2008

I will keep good note of it when I have no other choice than to use Vista when buying a new computer. Given the amount of other apps that I will have to upgrade, the later, the better.

Trick? Mar 12, 2008

Ok, what am I missing: I have been running both SDL Trados 2006 and later 2007 on Vista and Office 2003 for many months without a problem and without using this trick, I just installed it and logged on as usual. I didn't realize the described steps are necessary, I didn't need to use them.

*scratch head*

Hi tvtruc,

SDL 2006 and Trados 7 are smilar versions of TRADOS (SDL 2006 = v7.5). So, I think it should works (I’m not sure). Try it. Bye...

Hi Nicole ,

You are so lucky. Because usually, SDL Trados 2006 does not properly run on Vista without any trick. I would like to be in your shoes. Take care of yourself. Bye...
