Hello,
I have just bought SDL Trados Freelance 2007 through TGB.
I have installed it on my computer but since I have a Mac I had to run it on Parallels Desktop.

Everytime I try to run SDL Synergy, I receive an error message saying
"Failed to initialise application"
"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

I have already tried the solutions offered on the SDL website and they don't seem to work.
Has anyone experienced the same problem?

Thanks
Giorgia

Same problem May 8, 2009

Hi,
I've exactly the same problem.

to solve the initialisation problem you need to remove the file named sdl.projectapi.xml on c:doc&settings/admin/local settings/application data/sdl international/projectapi/

but after that I still have error messages. the error message in French is "Echec de création du référentiel pour les projets non suivis en ligne" and an other one is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" each time I try to create a new project...

Can somebody help me or let me know how to solve this problem ?

Thanks a lot.
Virginie.

Synergy patch May 9, 2009

Hi all,
I believe SDL have published a patch for Synergy downloadable as an MSI file, but I can't remember the link or where I saw it.
Anyway, as far as I can recommend, forget about Synergy. It will only fill your harddrive with copies of hundreds of unnecessary files and slow down your work considerably. It is only worth using if you need many files (several tens or hundreds of them) converted into TTX. Synergy has only brought me headaches in all other cases.
