Hi, everyone.

Just reinstalled my OS (Win7) on my laptop, and after installing MS office and Trados 7 I do not see any Trados icons in my Word... Any ideas?? I need to start working on an urgent project, but can't because of this problem.

Thankful for your speedy advice!

Check the Word startup folder Aug 9, 2010

and copy the Trados template from Trados installation folder to Word startup folder.
However, I am not really sure if Trados 7 will run on Windows 7 without problems. It was not designed to do so and according to the information availabe at SDL they do not support Trados 7 working on Win7.

Hello,

Windows 7 Aug 9, 2010

apparently has some kind of inbuilt XP emulator (virtual machine). This may be one way round the problem. I'm not sure which versions have this feature - may only be the Professional/Ultimate versions.

I do not have Windows 7 yet, but it will be a problem I will be faced with in the very near future - so keep us posted!

This is a typical problem even with Windows XP/Word 2003 or 2007/Trados 2007 combinations. We can search Proz.com for many sophisticate problem solving methods.

Best regards,

Thank you Aug 11, 2010

I'd like to thank all of those who gave feedback.

I tried the template method - didn't work.

My project was urgent, so I had to throw Trados to another XP machine where it worked fine. But this, of course, was only a temporary way out of this.

I don't know about the XP emulator, I might try this one.

Does anyone know which Trados versions work with Win7 ??

Thanks again.

Update on Windows 7 Oct 9, 2010

Now I have moved over to my new machine, I can confirm that I have no problems running Trados Studio 2009 or Trados 2007 together with Office 2007 on Windows 7 (64-bit version).

In fact Windows 7 seems to be much more friendly to older software than Vista was. I have not had to try out the XP virtual machine option for anything so far - which is a good job because this feature is only available in the "Ultimate" version of Windows 7 and an upgrade costs around €180

Edit: Apparently, it's available in the "Professional" version too - which may be a bit cheaper.
