Dear all,
I'd like to try the VLTM feature I will probably need for a huge multilingual project. But when I try to set up the VLTM, I always get the following error message: "WordFast is not installed properly".
I have full (registered) version of WF 5 and keep in mind that the Workgroup ID must have 10 characters.

Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?

Thank you.

Ahoj Stando,

Not the problem Mar 18, 2008

Hi Milan,
thanks for your quick reply and suggestion. I do have the latest version, i. e. 5.52, installed through CTRL+ALT+W.
BTW, I'm working under WinXP SP2 Home and Word 2003.

Any other suggestions? Reinstalling Wordfast by removing the document template and pressing CTRL+ALT+W?

See if WfRelay.dll is installed Mar 22, 2008

Stanislav, perhaps WfRelay.dll file did not get installed properly for some reason. This file is only needed for VLTM functionality. When you install Wordfast automatically (as per the instructions in WfReadMe text file, which is part of the download), WfRelay.dll should be saved in the folder where MS Word (winword.exe) resides. Now, if this part of the auto-install process fails for some reason, Wordfast will run fine, except for the VLTM feature. The solution is to save (drag and drop) WfRelay.dll in the folder where winword.exe is located. To find this location, you can search your hard drive for "winword.exe". [By the way, all the above is useful for Windows users only. The VLTM functionality is not currently available for Mac users.]

I'll try that Mar 22, 2008

Hi David,
thank you very much indeed, you've been very helpful. I already received a private message by Milan couple of days ago who mentioned the same solution to my problem.
I'll try that and will definitely let you know about the results.

Once again, thanks a million!

Where can I get the WfRelay.dll file from Jan 8, 2010

I have the same problem.

Does anybody know where can I get the WfRelay.dll file from if it didn't install on my computer?

Just download the full version Wordfast Classic, and the WfRelay.dll file should be included inside the zip package.
