One week ago I upgraded from SDL Trados 2007 Freelance to SDL Trados Studio 2009... but for various reasons I had to go back to the 2007 version. So I have uninstalled the 2009 version and reinstalled the 2007 version. The 2007 Translator's Workbench is running fine again - and so is the MultiTerm 2007 version, except for one thing.

I am connected to a remote base and when I access this remote base (and no other bases), I can browse through the posts - but when I start searching, I get the following error message:

"Error searching termbase EU: Could not find file 'C: \ProgramData \SDL International \MultiTerm \Termbases \mxw_50.mdb'..

This seems very strange... I mean there should not be any mdb file on my local PC for a remote term base... I am right?

I have tried to uninstall and install MultiTerm 2007 several times and to check that there are no hidden MTMaster files containing an mxw_50 file - but of no avail...

Any ideas? Could the Registry Key Information be "the culprit"?
What went wrong when uninstalling the 2009 version and reinstalling the 2007 version?
