I need to reinstall Deja Vu. Would all my TMs and TBs be lost if I reinstall?

Or would they be retained for future use?

TMs and TBs are not lost when reinstalling Deja Vu Feb 11, 2014

Hi Sarah,
No, your TMs and TBs will not be lost. They cannot be erased because they are not part of the install program (you created them and probably stored them in a specific directory; DV did not create them when you installed it).
Also, DV TMs and TBs format has been the same for ages, so there is no compatibility issues.
One recommendation, of course, is to copy them regularly (backup) in case your machine would fail, like any other important file!
Best Regards,
Caroline

Thanks Feb 11, 2014

Thanks, I was having some problems with Deja Vu so I uninstalled it. Now it appears that I cannot reinstall it. I keep getting the following error message.

Error 1326. Error getting file security:
C:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP\ConvertEmbeddedObjects.dotm GetLastError: 5

Does anyone know the problem and what is causing this?

Download it again from the Atril site Feb 12, 2014

I have no idea what embedded objects are giving the installation trouble, but there's no reason what you shouldn't simply sidestep it, so get yourself a fresh download from Atril and install that. However, you should make sure you've completely uninstalled the old installation, first. That is, go into the Atril folder in your Program Files and manually remove any remaining file. Or simply remove the whole folder and let the install program recreate it.

Problem is solved. Feb 12, 2014

I have the disc for Deja Vu. I reinstalled it from the disc and then updated to the latest build via the Atril website.

Actually, the only way I could install it was to do a custom install and NOT install the Embedded Object Conversion Macros that come with the automatic Deja Vu X2 installation.

Thanks to both of you for your help!
