Hi everyone,

I installed on Friday SDL Trados 2007 (Service Pack 2 - Build 835) on my PC (Windows XP, Service Pack 3). On Friday everything looked fine (the activation of the license on line worked) and I opened a couple of TM’s in my PC to see if the program worked and it did.

However, as soon as I tried to open Tag Editor (which didn't work, since Tag editor wasn't able to be launched) Workbench stopped working.

Every time I have tried to launch Workbench, I receive the following error:

"Trados has found a problem. Translator's Workbench will now close"

And also Tag Editor:

"Tag Editor has found a problem. Tag Editor will now close"

The license manager can’t be launched either.

I have tried to register Trados with all the applications closed, the repair function and even uninstalled and re-installed the program (with the firewall off)... unsuccessfully...

Can you please help?

Kind regards,


PS. I use MS Office 2007
