I had a problem with my installation so I had to uninstall both Trados and Multiterm, but I also removed Synergy accidentally. Where do I download it from?

No special download for Synergy Apr 22, 2008

If you wish to reinstall Trados, you also have to remove Synergy.
The Synergy component is part of your SDL Trados installation download and will be installed when you reinstall the software.
A special download only for Synergy does not exist AFAIK.

Regards
Jerzy

Trados is already installed Apr 22, 2008

I uninstalled Trados and Synergy was uninstalled with it. But when I installed Trados, only Trados was installed, no SDLX (which wasn't removed in the first place) nor Synergy. When I tried to run the installation again, I got the following window:



Is there a way to run each separate installation from the exe file?

Never happened to me this way Apr 22, 2008

Sorry, I don't know if it is possible to install only a part of the software.
In my case I always deinstalled the full package (including Synergy and SDLX) and then installed it back again - always without a problem.

Just unpack the exe file and take a look on the contents of the folder it creates.

The SDLT package is a bunch of rather independent programs (SDLX and the Trados/Synergy combo), the purpose of the installation shell is only to automate the installation in a correct order (including the prerequisites) and create a false impression they're really unified.

BTW.
SDLX Lite is still available without the Trados modules.
See http://www.translationzone.com/en/downloads/demodownloads/

Why you need to uninstall?
Once installed, it should work... but maybe it's a false impression

Separate download for SDLT 2006 Apr 22, 2008

Yep.
Before you remove Trados.

The Synergy component is part of your SDL Trados installation download and will be installed when you reinstall the software.

The Synergy client was available as separate download for some earlier SDLT versions (2006, as I remember).
As it was completely useless at this stage, few people remember it ever existed.

Synergy Apr 22, 2008

Jerzy was right, I had to uninstall both SDLX and Synergy, which wasn't available but somehow was not completely removed, to get the installer to prompt me to install all the programs.

Thanks

SDLX Lite Apr 23, 2008

Hello Everyone,

SDLX Lite will work ONLY with projects prepared with the ELITE version of SDLX (similar to the relationship between Adobe Acrobat Professional for creating PDFs, and Adobe Acrobat Reader which can only read and edit PDFs).

Many Thanks,

Gareth Powell

Yep, I know.
I have an Elite licence.

BTW.
The upgrade to Elite 2007 I purchased a lot of months ago isn't still listed in my account (I received the activation codes by mail).

The point was SDLX is in fact a separate software.
The prove is the separate Lite version

Cheers
GG
