MemoQ 2015, project manager edition - Client API
Thread poster: koriblik

Mar 29, 2016

Hi, I am trying to prepare some automation scripts using Client API available in Project Manager Edition, but I am still getting the error: "The current edition of MemoQ does nto support access to the MemoQ.ClientService API". Tested using C# and VBS, error appears in both cases. I am running the latest version of MemoQ 7.8.122 (project manager edition).
To repro the error just use the VBS example from "c:\ProgramData\MemoQ\SDK\memoQ.ClientService.Guide.78.pdf" on page 7. The error is thrown on this line: Set createTMRes = tmService.CreateTM(".\Test-TM-folder", fixedInfo, mutableInfo)

Hi Koriblik,

I know it comes a bit late, and you might have already gotten an answer from Kilgray support, but just in case anyone else needs that bit of info, the client APIs for memoQ works only for permanent, aka "standalone" PM licenses, not the ones gotten from a memoQ server.

It is written clearly in the guide which is in that same SDK folder:

Licensing requirements
Caution: The memoQ client API requires a permanent project manager license.
The memoQ client API will not be available if your copy of memoQ uses a concurrent-access license (CAL) or a mobile license (enterprise-license-management, ELM), received from a memoQ server or a stand-alone CAL server. Likewise, the memoQ client API will not work if it is licensed with the translator pro or the 4Free edition.
