I have heard that Internet Explorer 8 does not agree with TRADOS and therefore should not be downloaded and installed... is that true?

It prevents Multiterm 2007 from working Apr 28, 2009

or at least that was my case.
And this was confirmed by SDL Support. However, I asked when still only the Beta 2 of IE 8 was available.
So possibly the final release will work. TBH I'm not willing to play the guinea pig in that case.

As of today... Apr 28, 2009

IE 8 is officially downloadable (final version). Knowing that SDL never fixed the Java incompatibility, I am not an optimist about IE 8icon_frown.gif

Neither me.
For the same reason.

See http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=21687628-5806-4ba6-9e4e-8e224ec6dd8c&displaylang=en and download the toolkit to disable the automatic install if IE8.

On the secure side... Apr 29, 2009

The problem is it's no rule at all.
On some machines MT will cease to work, on some (few) machines it will work correctly.
Recently I saw a machine with IE8 with a working MT and I was really surprised.
Probably a newer build behaves in a different way but you can't be sure how the next patched IE8 builds will behave.

If you want to stay on the secure side, block IE8 setup.
Me too, I have no longer force to reinstall...

PS.
The corporate rule is to blockicon_smile.gif

... I can't be sure for your computer environment:)

As far as I know, there is no direct connection between IE and Multiterm, MT depends mainly on the Java platform and that does not change with the upgrade of the browser.

Anyway, you may try quite safely the new browser, as before upgrade the OS creates a restore point, so no need to reinstall in the unlikely case of a problem

Hm... Apr 29, 2009

I am a sucker for new software, which I am happy to admiticon_smile.gif, but in the case of IE 8, I think I'll have to pass. I seldom use IE anyway, while TRADOS I have to use often (grudgingly)icon_smile.gif

I simply cannot risk to find out the Truth in this occasion.icon_wink.gif Windows System Restore is a hit and miss kind of deal, and I know from experience it cannot be completely trusted.

Use a disk imaging software instead.
I use Acronis.

MultiTerm depends a lot on Internet Explorer May 7, 2009

I think it depends a lot, when you work with the MultiTerm desktop application, the window that shows the entries is actually a component of Internet Explorer.

The entries are stored in XML in the database. To display the entries, MultiTerm converts them to HTML internally and then the application shows this HTML file using the Internet Explorer component.

That's the reason why MultiTerm 2007 can have problems with Internet Explorer 8. They could never test it with IE8...icon_frown.gif

Certain update sites (Windows update, Creative update, etc.) only work with IE and require that it is present and active. As mentioned above - Trados uses it, etc. So, unfortunately, it is a must have,

Hi Pavel and all,
I have to agree with Alex. I am a happy Firefox user and certainly not thinking about going back to IE. The tasks Pavel described only require IE6 installed along with WinXP, so no real need to upgrade to IE7, let alone IE8.
