Hi everyone,

I have installed SDL Trados 2007 (version 8.0, build 835). My operating system is Windows Vista.

I have tried to use Tag Editor but I am experiencing problems with the Plug ins all in all:

These are the errors I get:

- Unknown error when reading plug-in filter management file.
- Failed to retrieve tag toolbar settings for plugin file format
- No verification plugin could verify this document

So I can open and close segments but I can't verify nor the spelling or grammar and perform the tag verification.

I would be very gratefuly if anyone could help!

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry but this likely won't help you, I am also experiencing problems with plug-ins.

I have Trados 2007 v8 b7035 (service pack 2)

Everything was working fine, I was translating a ppt slide in tag editor, and then everything stopped working.

Since I had two sets of trados (2007 and 2006) I removed 2006.

Now Trados Synergy says that I need to be running in license mode and wouldn't start, so I re-registered and that seems to be working again.

But Tageditor will not work, it says that the Powerpoint filter is not registered.

In Synergy I tried to change filter settings and it said that Plugnfilefilterdefinitions.xml is not found.

It then said that there was an "error loading java virtual memory settings" and a window with all of the filters for office 2000 and later (word, ppt, excel, etc) showed up all greyed out.

However, I found both Powerpoing filter and Plugnfilefilterdefinitions.xml in my computer.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

Of course it happens when I have an impending deadline.

Reinstalling worked Jun 29, 2008

Well, several hours later... I downloaded the software from SDl (1 hour) and erased all of the previous installation... then reinstalled everything... and now it is working.

I still cannot do spell check Jun 29, 2008

It wasn't until I read Estefania's post that I realized I can't check spelling either. So, I hope someone will reply to her.

I find some bugs in SDL Trados 2007.
SDL International has a webpage to discuss on this matter. It also has patches for this software.
Please check at SDL Trados Knowledgebase.
