Hello,

I have been using Tradios Freelance Version 5.0 for some years now, with Windows 98.

As I would like to upgrade to XP, I was wondering if I could still use my USB dongle for FV 5.0, or if I need to make an upgrade to 6.5. By the way, the cost for upgrading from 5.0 (or 5.5) to 6.5 is EUR 245,00 - so any advice is very welcome.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards,
Erik

Windows XP is not a problem - Office XP could well be Jan 9, 2004

Hi Erik,
As I would like to upgrade to XP,

If you're just talking about Windows XP, there shouldn't be a problem (you may need to install a new dongle driver, though).

Trados 5.0 did not yet fully (and officially) support Office XP (see this article from the Trados Knowledge Base).

HTH, Ralf

Thanks, Ralf! Jan 10, 2004

Thanks a lot for your help, Ralf!

The FAQ section on Trados told that I would possibly need a new driver, to be easily downloaded from the Trados' software supplier Rainbow, but still didn't mention if I could still use the FV 5.0 dongle with Windows XP.

Will keep you updatedicon_wink.gif

Best regards,
Erik
