I was installing MultiTerm 2007 on a new laptop with Win7 and it gave me the following error:
The program or feature"\??\C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\SDL MultiTerm 2007 Desktop SP1\Start.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.

Any ideas on how to solve it?

Thanks su much,

Maria Alejandra

you need to... Jan 25, 2010

run the installer (SDL MultiTerm 2007.exe or similar name, depending on the version of the product, which can be found in the Products or Installers subfolder - sorry, I don't remember the exact file structure), not the start.exe

Do you think this may be the file? Jan 25, 2010

Hi Zoltan,

Thank you for your reply. I look through the MultiTerm folder and this is the only exe file I found: MultiTerm.exe.manifest
Is this the file you are referring to? Thanks,

Maria Alejandra

Translating .ttx file and working with Translation Memories in SDLX 2007 with Windows Vista Jan 27, 2010


I've just purchased the CAT tool which I've used in a previous job and on windows XP.

Now I've installed it in my laptop PC with Windows Vista and I'm bumping into lots of problems that I didn't have before...

Fisrt, I've started to translate a .ttx file in TagEditor. I've closed the file down after having translated a few segments and made a comment in the file. Now the file appears to be saved as a .COMMENT file and can't be reopened in TagEditor (format unrecognised!) Is it possible to reopen the file without having lost all the translated content?

I want to understand where the problem comes from... I opened the .ttx file in TagEditor and the workbench was open too, but the TM didn't appear to be working properly...

Subsequenty, the TM sent me Excel TM file, do I need to convert them in Multiterm or is there a quicker way to proceed, with Studio 2009 per exemple? (I've also got this new software but I'm afraid I have to deal with the above problems before I try to figure how it works...)

Anyway, thanks in advance for your all the tips you'll give me!

Kind regards,
