Hello,
I was wondering if anyone here has had any success running SDLX (or any other CAT software) on one of the Vista betas? I'm running Vista RC1 and when I'm trying to run SDLX 2006, I'm getting some cryptic error messages and the application refuses to start... Any ideas?
Thanks
Johan

It will take about a year or two after the final launch of any new operating system to let the software developers catch up again. If you want to run this Vista on your machine, you have to do without SDL Trados 2006 or earlier versions, I'm afraid. The same has to be said for the newest version of Office, SDL-software is not compatible to it.
So you better stick to XP for a while and wait for SDL Trados 2008 patch 2 or perhaps SDL Trados DV Wf 2009.

Cheers
Heinrich

Got it to work Sep 20, 2006

Actually, after some fiddling around I did manage to get it to work. You need to turn off the User Account Protection feature. To do this, type "msconfig" on a command prompt, select the "Tools" tab and launch the "Disable UAP" item. Your PC will be restared and it should work.

If you want to try this (recommended only for experimenting, not for mission-critical work), you can download the Vista RC1 from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/preview.mspx

It may also be necessary to remove and re-install SDLX after upgrading to Vista.

Congretulations! Sep 20, 2006

But is there any advantage in relation to XP?

... much for translation work, unless you want to experiment with speech recognition. Apart from that, it looks quite nice and it's free (for now).
