Seems this is not suitable for my Windows XP. While trying to install I receive message "The system file is not suitable for running MS DOS and Microsoft Windows applications".
Any suggestions?

Which one? Feb 4, 2005

Which one is causing the problems? Both work fine on my Windows XP.

Is it MSG Browser? If yes, then you have probably overwritten a system library during the installation with an old version. You should have kept the current version. I guess you could get the file from another installation of Windows XP, but unfortunately I don't remember the file name. You can ask the author of the software.

I also remembered another tool:
ApSIC Xbench, http://www.apsic.com/en/products_xbench.html

All the tips come from Jost Zetzsche's Tool Kit: http://www.internationalwriters.com/toolkit

By the way, I still search the MS glossaries just by using the good old Total Commander (Alt-F7).

this is self-extracting archive Feb 4, 2005

Ran and unpack it on Win95-Me, NT, 2000. Than you can run setup on XP.

I downloaded the file msgb1600 from the suggested site msgbrowser.com and, when clicking on it in order to unpack, receive the message
C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for MS DOS and Micsrosoft Windows applications.
I have no previous versions, or do not know if they exists in Windows XP. I am afraid I am not a specialist in OS...

MSGBrowser Feb 4, 2005

msgb1600.exe is just an self-extracting archive containing the actual installation files. You can extract it with any unzipping tool - WinZip, WinRar, maybe even using Windows XP internal unzipper - just rename the file to msgb1600.zip.

However, MSGBrowser is quite outdated. I think ApSIC Xbench will be more useful. And for converting the glossaries to Trados format you can use MSGloss2TWB.

Xbench to TMX to Trados Feb 4, 2005

Thank you for the compliment of our tool. With Xbench 2.6, you can indeed export the loaded glossaries to TXM and from there import into Trados, although we'd prefer you use Xbench for your queries...

Use CSVConverter to generate TMX Feb 4, 2005

Hi,

You can use CSVConverter, a free utility that converts glossaries in CSV format to TMX. It was created specially to convert MS Glossaries to TMX.

You can get it at http://www.maxprograms.com
