Hi everybody:

I have a problem with MultiTerm which seems to be caused by Java.

I updated Java, because my computer got slower every day. Result: MultiTerm did not work any longer. So I deinstalled the Java update, but nothing did change - MultiTerm still does not work properly. Whenever I try to enter a new entry, I get the message: "Null" and then "java.lang.NullPointerException".

I am working on Win7, using Trados 2007 Suite and MultiTerm 2007 Desktop. I found the following Java versions installed on my computer: Java 6 Update 6 and J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 12.

I could not repair MultiTerm because the program tells me, it needs Internet Explorer 5 or higher. I have installed Explorer 8 !?!?

Any ideas of how to resolve that problem?

Best regards
Sabine

Try to disable next-generation Java plug-in Jun 23, 2010

Hi Sabine,

I have also had that problem several times before - and so have many othersicon_wink.gif If you search the forums you will find several threads about this.

MultiTerm should work again if you disable the next-generation Java plug-in. See e.g. this post for instructions on how to do this:

Agree with Mette Jun 23, 2010

Hello Sabine,

I did have the same problem before.

Please try the following:

1. Click Start and then select Control Panel from the menu.
2. Double-click on Java. The Java Control Panel is displayed.
3. Click on the Advanced tab.
4. Clear the “Enable the next-generation Java plug-in” check box.
5. Click OK to save your changes and close the Java Control Panel.
6. Reboot your PC.

The error messages should no longer appear and you are able to work with your termbase again without problems.

Please read SDL knowledge base article http://talisma.sdl.com/article.aspx?article=2362&p=1
for more information.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, but... Jun 23, 2010

Hi Mette,

thanks for your answer. I did disable next-generation Java plug-in (as I, of course, read all the forum entries you mention...icon_wink.gif ).
But it still does not workicon_frown.gif

Thanks to Sandrine, too Jun 24, 2010

Hi!

As I already told, I did disable next Java-generation plug in, but the problem still was not solved.
So, I checked once more and found out, somehow (???) the plug-in had re-enabled itself ?!?!?

Nevertheless, now everything is workingicon_smile.gif
