I am occasionally getting the "Error creating window handle" message on Ctrl+F (as well as on Edit -> Find) in SDL Trados Studio 2009. Sometimes it is enough to switch to another view and back, sometimes I have to restart the application. It may be a bug but perhaps someone already came across a solution... Thanks for your help.

It seems to be related to your default browser Jul 1, 2009

I used to have such issues and setting IE as the default browser helped - which is quite unfortunate for other reasons.

Thank you; the problem reappeared so I tried your suggestion - unfortunately, without immediate success... But I also received a "low memory" message and I cannot copy anything from Trados Studio to clipboard. What is funny is that Windows Task Manager says I have 0.9 GB of physical memory available out of 2 GB. I guess that should be enough. Anyway, I will keep IE as the default browser, maybe it will prevent this from reappearing in the future (and let you know about the result).

Confirm Jul 3, 2009

I can confirm this ""Error creating window handle" error, exactly as described, plus the memory error (I have multiple other such messages now and then, only when working with Studio, of course). I also got this message with other functions. It seems to relate to the copy&paste error.

Save work, close Studio, restart Studio, and I can CTRL-F again. It's no doubt a bug, but yet I have no clue if it is Studio's runtime environment or the application itself.

Some more experience: Keeping IE as the default browser does not seem to have had any impact on Studio’s behaviour, which, after a couple of thousand words translated in this product, can be summarised as follows: After about 500 words of translation, it is not possible to copy, the error mentioned in the topic title starts appearing on Ctrl+F and also on Batch Tasks -> Finalize, and unless I restart the application at that point, it crashes soon. Are SLD people aware of this? Is something being done about it?

Other than that, I must say love this product. I don’t remember being this happy with a new version of any software I use.

Hi Milan, yes, they are aware of this problem as I reported it to them a few weeks ago. And I've been reassured that this and similar problems (probably C++-related) are being worked on.
