Hope this hasn't been answered yet. I couldn't find anything on the forum.
I have switched to Windows 7 recently and just realized that now I can't use some of the functions of SDLX SP2 like, for example, the Print Preview, Translation Preview or the Help feature, amongst others that don't work.
Does anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance

SDL Trados 2007 SP2 is not supported Aug 19, 2010

SDL Trados 2007 SP2 is not fully supported in Windows 7 but SDL Trados Studio 2009 is. We had discussions on this. Please redo search on Proz forum.

Best regards,

Not supported? Aug 19, 2010

Are we talking SDLX or Trados? Trados Suite 2007 does work in Windows 7.

On my laptop, I have Windows 7 and the latest version of SDL Trados 2007 Suite Freelance Edition, and I mean latest as of 2 weeks ago, including all updates and patches, and it works like a charm. In fact, installing it on my laptop solved a problem I had on my PC because of TMs with sublanguages like Spanish US, which XP does not support but Windows 7 does.

I will upgrade to Studio 2009 only because one of my most important clients did and I began stumbling upon problem after problem with the packages I received, not being able to import them, not being able to open the TMs received, etc.

Maybe you need to uninstall and reinstall Trados. The problem could be having upgraded your operating system while Trados was already installed. Just a thought. Notice that when I installed Trados my OS was already Windows 7, factory installed, not upgraded. It could be something related to sequence of installation. First this, then that. It's worth trying.

SDL Trados 2007 runs fine on 64 bit OS Aug 19, 2010

SDL Trados 2007 SP2 is not fully supported in Windows 7 but SDL Trados Studio 2009 is.

Just want to clarify an important detail: the last release of SDL Trados 2007 Suite (build 863) runs without any problems on a 64 bit OS (such as Windows 7 64 bits, for example).
