Good morning,

I am trying to align two files with WinAlign, both in .rtf and .doc formats, and the following message appears:

Runtime Error!
Program: C: Program Files: SDL International: T2007: TT: WinAlign.exe
This application has requested the RunTime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the support team.

Has any of you experienced this before? If so, does any of you know how to carry on working?

Thanks in advance!

Try registering Nov 7, 2009

Hi Borja,
this is just a blind shot, but it often helps. Try running the SelfRegister.bat batch file from within your Trados installation folder. If it doesn't help, try reinstalling.

Winalign Runtime error! - One solution found Apr 15, 2012

Hi everybody,

I just had this problem also.

I spent a lot of time going to the file carefully to see if there were any strange fields, but I still have the same problem.

I was translating a Russian-English file pair which I had saved as.rtf files.

I finally noticed that the English RTF file was much, much larger than the Russian RTF file. The Russian was only 494 KB, where is the English file was 95,544 KB.

All I did was copy the entire English file into a new.rtf file. The new file was only 172 KB.

Winalign had no problem with the new file.

I suspect the problem was something stored in the document history which disappeared with the copy and paste.

I think I had to run into this problem and solution twice (as usual), but I'm glad I stuck through it this time - I am very much hoping that the third time I will solve it quickly.
