I am using Trados 2007, and my problem is the following:

I had to translate a file for a client using an .ini file that he provided.
Now, I am trying to keep working on another .ttx file for another client, and when I open it I get the following message :
"Error in plug-in filter definition file c:\...\Word_1_0_0_0.xml :
The C++ Plug-in in DLL TradosWordBinaryFile.dll does not export a valid factory function CreateWordFileScanner"

I can work in TagEditor but I can't insert the tags, I have to copy and paste each one manually, which is really tedious.

I have searched the forum for similar problems, and none fit exactly mine. I only have the .ttx file, so I cannot accept all changes in the word document.

Also, this clearly comes form the fact that I used an .ini for another file earlier.
I know how to use a specific .ini, but then I do I "go back" to the previous settings to keep working on my other file?

I hope you can help!
