Trados 7 Freelance - TagEditor InDesign Filter - Error

When I open an .INX.TTX file (InDesign) in TagEditor, the following error messages are retrieved:

'Failed to retrieve tag toolbar settings for plugin file format:'
'Filter definition not found: TRADOS InDesign Filter'

The file will open, though.

I have already tried copying the file 'InDesign Filter' in folder TRADOS 7 Freelance\Filters, and the file 'TradosIndesignFilter1.0.0.0' (it is .rar file, but I also tried unzipping it, this the .jar file) in folder T7_FL\TT\RCFilter

I use Windows Vista.

Has anyone encountered this problem?
Can you tell me how to solve it?
Apart from copying the files I haven't taken any other measure.

Thank you!!

Build Number Feb 14, 2009

what is your Trados build number? AFAIK, InDesign files have been supported since build 756, not earlier.

This is a known issue.

Check this old thread for a solution:

Edit: Just for the record, which version of Trados do you have? InDesign INX files are only supported by Trados versions 7.1 and above.

Failed to save target content Nov 10, 2013

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I am looking to get rid of an error that gives me headache each time I want to generate target document files. I contacted SDL for help but they asked to buy PSMA contract. That's annoying because I have already paid almost a thousand dollars for licensing.

SDL itself asked me to check this website if I need help. I hope someone help me, I will be really thankful.

This is the error I get when trying to safe the target file.

Failed to save target content:Unknown error when reading plug-in filter definition file\User\SaidAhmad\AppData\Local\Temp\hi4cewwg.spy\xg2u5ul4xxr.doc

Thank you so much for your help in advance.

Hi Farzad Nov 10, 2013

Somehow ...\Temp\hi4cewwg.spy\xg2u5ul4xxr.doc does not sound good... This is certainly NOT a file definition. Have you checked your system for viruses, trojans etc? Do you know what is this xg2u5ul4xxr.doc, where does it come from?
