I have a technical problem with trados or rather with the configuration I want to run Trados on !

The thing is that I'm used to run my computer with a non common configuration since a couple of years given my greediness in applications...

I usually change "C: \Program Files" and the "C: \Program Files\Common Files" to "D: \ Program Files and D: \CommonFiles", and up till now it never created any problem !

Last fortnight I decided to do the big jump and go for SDL Trados Studio 2009 and Windows 7, however even though Trados 2009/2007 was working perfectly and I should confess it charmed me, Multiterm on the other hand wasn't working...

The tech guy from SDL has been very helpful till now and we finally pinpointed the problem ! It was my settings !!

And I was wondering if there is any other translator out there who faced the same problem and found a solution (registry change for example...) so that I go back to my daily work and make an image of the system for backup...
