Hallo! Is there anyone who can help me understand and solve the following:
I want to add new entries/terms to my SDL Multiterm 2007. but
after choosing from the toolbar: Entry, Add I get the error message:
! null
followed by the error message:
! java.lang.NullPointerException,
and I do not receive any fields at all where I can enter new terms.

I do appreciate any help out of this situation.

Regards
Jóhann

this should fix it Apr 17, 2009

Open command prompt (Start, Accessories)

Then type:

regsvr32 jscript.dll

and press enter

Now it should work again.

Please, use forum search Apr 18, 2009

This has been recently discussed many times - our poor colleague Jerzy Czopyk seems to be busy full time answering this question. Among the recent threads on this: http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/122464-sdl_multiterm_error:_javalangnullpointerexception.html

Thanks, Victoria Apr 18, 2009

So, once again:
This behaviour is caused by the latest Java updates.
Go to Control Panel, open the Java item there.
select "Advanced", click the plus sign beside the "java Plug-in" entry and deselect the option there. Below you see a screenshot of German version of this setting.
