Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this.


With term recognition option enabled, Workbench crashes and closes when I give the commands “Get Next Term” or “Get Current Term”.

Error message displayed:

Microsoft Visual Basic

Run-time error '-2147023170 (800706be)':

Automation error

The remote procedure call failed.


- SDL Trados Translator's Workbench 8.3.0863 - (Build 863)
- MultiTerm - (Build 448)
- MS Office Word 2003 (11.8313.8221) SP3
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2008 Service Pack 3
- Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook - Intel Celeron CPU 540 @ 1.86GHz, 1,49 GB of RAM

Additional Notes:

This is not the first time this is happening to me, it is just the first time I was so annoyed that I decided to take the time off my very busy schedule to deal with this.

I checked the web and also this forum but couldn't find anything related to this certain error message with Trados. I know you people likewise have busy schedules so let me say "I'm sorry" in advance if there was a post about this and I missed it.

Many thanks
