I have been using Transit 3.0 Smart for years, and it has been working fine. I have not change its configuration recently - nevertheless I have a new problem that may be related to some bad configuration.
When I receive a new project I can open it, including the language pairs. However, even without specifying any reference material, when I click on Alt+Ins, which normally activates the Fuzzy search window, the window freezes. Instead of creating the associative network it gets blocked, and I cannot close it without shutting down Transit entirely.
As the same problem arises when I re-open old pxf files (that I could handle perfectly in the past) or if I create a project on my own. Any ideas what configuration parameter / what else can be the culprit?
If necessary, I will re-install Transit but I think there must be an easier way.TIA

Even grimmer situation Jan 19, 2009

I uninstalled Transit Smart, and tried to reinstall it. No success; maybe the install CD was too old, maybe there is some glitch with some configuration with my computer. So, I opted for Satellite PE as a temporary solution. I downloaded and installed it. I opened the project and the language pair, but when I pressed Alt+Ins, the same problem occurred: fuzzy index window popped up and freezed.
So, there must be a corrupt config file somewhere. (When uninstalling Transit Smart, I did not erase config files that might be used by other applications - this might be the source of the problem.) Any ideas where to look for the culprit file? I guess finding the appropriate file and deleting it might solve the problem, as Transit can recreate it from scratch, so the new one won't be corrupted. But I may be on the wrong track...
Any ideas are appreciated.
Attila

Many thanks, Antonin, this straightforward tip worked.
This was indeed the problem. Avanquest's Fix-It was the problem; I uninstalled it, and then I could easily reinstall Transit. Only one letter in the product name needs to be changed to describe its action on my computer...
