Hey everyone!
I recently migrated a TM onto another computer and since can't use it anymore: "Deja Vu could not open the file specified." It worked fine up until the point I copied it. Does anyone have an idea why this might have happened or maybe even how to fix it? It would be greatly appreciated.

I run X2 Professional, version 8.0.533, on Win 7 Home Premium on the new machine and X2 Standard (not sure of the exact version number) on Win 7 (not sure either, I don't have access to that computer anymore) on the computer the TM was created on.

Have you copied all accessory files? Jan 16, 2016

A DVX TM consists of several files (usually at least four of them):
<TM name>.dvmdb (the main file)
<TM name>.dvmdx
<TM name>.<language code 1>.dvmdi
<TM name>.<language code 2>.dvmdi
...
<TM name>.<language code n>.dvmdi

Did you copy all files?

If you didn't and don't have access to the original files, you can try to repair the TM from within DVX: Menu File > Tools > Repair > Translation Memory.

I didn't Jan 16, 2016

Which is weird, because I actually just copied the folder...
Well, thank you for the pointers. I hope the repair will work.
