First I started having problem when error message appeared saying "object of instances...", and searched the solution on this forum, tried some advice (e.g. removing 3 xml files in SDL Trados Studio folder, uninstall and reinstall the program). It seemed to have worked, but then another error message appeared saying "Sdl.TranslationStudio.ApiProjectManagementIProjectManagement service couldn't start"(The message appeared in Japanese because I use Trados in Japanese). I found the solution for this message for iMac users, but not windows PC users.
It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can help me.

Had the same problem a long time ago Feb 9, 2012

This question has been asked before but anyway...

I had the same problem once and since I have a servcie contract, I contaced SDL support and this is what they told me to do.

Please try the following: exit SDL Trados Studio, browse to the relevant directory.
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER]
Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER]

Here you find the following 3 files:

Make a backup copy of them in a spare folder and delete the 3 original files.
Launch Studio and try again.

It worked for me. Hope it works for you, too.
