Hello everybody.

I have a problem with my operating system and I have to reinstall. Is not a matter of emergency but is pressing!
I have just purchased an up-grade from SDL 2007 to 2009.
I need an advice! Is recomandable to install the up-date and than to reinstall the whole system or to perform first the reinstalling of the system and then to release the version 2007 and to upgarde to 2009, I noticed that is quite a procedure for that.

Thank you in advance for your advice!

You have the best situation for installing SDL 2007 and Studio... Apr 26, 2010

Hi Irina

You have the best condition to install SDL Trados and Studio, since your system is clean. Nevertheless, it is important to install all updates, both mandatory (security, normally) and non-mandatory (updated libraries, Dot Net Framework etc.).

I would do that:

- before installing Trados (2007 and Studio), go to Windows Update and apply all updates and patches;

- install Microsoft Office (before Trados);

- go to Windows Update again to get all patches and updates to MS Office;

- install Trados 2007 (latest build #863); and

- install Studio SP2.
