Dear fellow specialists.



At the moment I am working with Trados 5.5, creating a database from older translations. My employer has Trados 5.5 installed on two computers, but WinAlign only works correctly on one of them. Whenever I try to save a project with the malfunctioning program to the hard disk of the other computer the following error message appears:



(123): The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect [//XXX] AlignmentIO.cpp: line 101



However, when I try to save a project to the local hard disk this message appears:



(5) Access is denied



After this has happened, an error window appears that tells me that WinAlign.exe has developed a fault and then the program shuts down.



I browsed through the Trados support website without finding anything resembling this problem. Therefore, I turn to you dear fellow translators for some advice.



With thanks for your support.



Jóhann R.

Patch for Winalign Aug 1, 2002

I dont\' know if this patch can be useful to solve your problem, but currently there is a patch for Winalign.. I can\'t tell you more because I still have to start working with it.



In any case... go to the Trados site, login in the translationzone (otherwise register!)



Then go in the Download section, and then in Patches, and see if some of them can help you



Good luck,

Carla

Thanks for your help Aug 10, 2002

Thank you Ralf for your suggestion. However, I did not contact Trados Support because I suddenly discovered the CAT center here at Proz and posted a query in the Trados group forum with the results that all my worries were wiped away in few hours.
