I tried to use demo of DVX editor, but I do not know how to start.
I downloaded user's manual and sample files but still do not understand.

When I want to click "New," the icon is gray and I cannot select it.

When I want to open the sample file, I cannot choose it because the extension of the sample file is RTF, when I have to choose .dvproj file. However, according to the manual, I am supposed to put the sample file to C:\My Project and I just followed that, but I cannot choose it.

I have no idea what to do and I spent two days in vain.

I hope somebody can help me.

You should apply for a 30-day evaluation licence Nov 2, 2009

Hi Purigorota
The DVX Editor version is not very useful. The best way forward would be to apply for a free 30-day evaluation licence.
It would also be good idea to join the Yahoo Group at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/dejavu-l/
Let us know how you get on.

Clarification on DVX editions Nov 2, 2009

DVX has 4 editions with different features: Workgroup, Professional, Standard and Editor.

The Editor edition is free, and you cannot create new project with this free version. You can only open and translate "satellite" projects prepared by the agency using the Workgroup edition. As a translator, you will need the Standard or Professional edition to create new projects from different file types.

You can find a comparison of the DVX editions at http://www.atril.com/featurecomparison.asp?InFrame=true

Thank you all! Nov 4, 2009

Mr. Herbert Eppel

Thank you for your advice.

Actually, I got evaluation key from DV support, but it did not work. I do not know why.

I checked the Yahoo mailing list, it seems it will be hard to find what I want, but I'll try.

Mr.Selcuk Akyuz

Thank you for your advice.

You mean, with Editor demo version, I cannot create project. I understood.
But I cannot afford Standard or Professional.
I mean, before I decided to buy DV, I want to try it.

Mr. Kevin Lossner

Thank you for your advice.

I downloaded it, but still I do not understand...

Need to get to the bottom of the evaluation licence problem Nov 4, 2009

Something clearly went wrong, and it would be good to get to the bottom of it.

What exactly do you mean by "it did not work"?

Are you sure you entered the temporary licence code correctly into the corresponding box?

Did you get some kind of error message?

What do you you see when you start DVX and go to Help > About ... ?
