While installing an upgrade to SDL Trados 2007, the installation screen won't allow me to install SDL Phrasefinder. When I click on the link, *nothing* happens. Has anyone encountered this, and do they have a solution?

My OS is Windows XP, the Trados build is 835, I have Multiterm 2007 installed as well as SDL Service Pack 2.

Any help is much appreciated!

I can't install SDL Phrasefinder either Nov 1, 2008

A message comes up on the screen and says that "Windows 2000 or higher" is required, and that "the installation will now abort".

I have Vista as my operating system.

I hope you found an answer Apr 16, 2010

Because nearly a year and a half later, I am having the same problem. I am also using Vista.

I am hoping that I just installed things in the wrong order, but I would appreciate any help with finding a workaround for this.

February 2011 and no solution for years already Feb 28, 2011

As far as I can tell.

Does anyone actually use PhraseFinder?

Correct forum and support Feb 28, 2011

Hello everyone,
I suggest the correct forum for this question would be the SDL Trados Support.
But anyways, you are eligible for free support on installation and licensing issues, so I recommend that you log a support case on
