Multiterm and MS Access, different software languages

My Multiterm does not work anymore.

I had MS Office Small Business Edition 2003 and SDL Multiterm 2007 (english versions) on my computer and everything worked fine.

Now I have installed MS Access 2003 in Swedish (I bought a legal second hand copy of MS Office Professional Edition, not from Pirate Bay or similar).

When I installed MS Access the file extension .mdb was automatically associated with Access and Multiterm did not work. I reassociated .mdb files with Multiterm and I can see under Properties that this association is still valid. I also reinstalled Multiterm, but it still does not work.

I´m not an expert in MS Access but it seems to work fine.

I can see three reasons for my problem:

MS Access and Multiterm (using the same file format) on the same computer could create the problem.
Installing only MS Access in Swedish and all other MS programs in English could create problem.
Installing only MS Access from the MS Office Professional and the rest of the program from MS Office Small Business Edition is creating the problem.

Or a combination of these three? Does somebody have any ideas?

Try registering MultiTerm... Mar 16, 2009

Double click on the #_SelfRegister_Desktop.bat file. You can find it in C:\Program Files\SDL International\MultiTerm 2007 (instalation folder by default).
Hope this helps...

Thanks, but it doesn´t help Mar 16, 2009

Now I clicked on the file you recommended. It did not help. I clicked again and restarted the computer but it doesn´t help. The problem is that a small box appears with the text "Unknown error".
