Hi all!

I really hope someone can help me on this.

I just bought and installed Trados 2009 on my PC.
When I open .doc files and .ppt files everything works fine, but when I try to open .xls files a message pops up: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

I went to the Help guide and verified that Excel application was not open (and it wasn't) and then I verified Excel activation (and when I click on activate product in Excel Help menu, it says that the product is already activated).

Does someone have the same problem? Do you know how to solve it?

Thanks in advance!

Eleonora.

Which version of Studio do you have? Sep 24, 2010

This sounds like a file filter problem. Which version of Studio do you have? Make sure it is SP2 (or SP3) and not SP1.

Modify LoadBehavior Sep 24, 2010

Recently, I had the same below error when opening Excel with Trados Studio:
'Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation'

Additionally, when I directly opened Excel alone, I got the error "Microsoft Office Excel has stopped working"

If your situation is the same as mine, then the solution (for Trados Studio SP2 and Office 2003) is:

Click START - RUN - regedit - select HKEY, LOCAL MACHINE, SOFTWARE, Microsoft, Office, Excel, Addins, BtOfficeAddin, right click to modify number 3 of LoadBehavior to 0.


Regards,

thanks for the reply.
My Excel application seems to be working fine on its own.

Modify LoadBehavior Sep 24, 2010

My Excel used to work well too, the problem happened when I closed it, it said "Microsoft Office Excel has stopped working". I followed above workaround and it is OK now.

Cant' find Excel subfolder Sep 24, 2010

I tried to go to the path specified, but when I get to the Office folder, I have only subfolders 11.0 // 12.0 // Common // Delivery // Powerpoint and no Excel subfolder

In folder 11.0, I have an Excel subfolder containing another folder called "InstallRoot".

This is not a path, but a registry entry Sep 24, 2010

He is referring to a registry entry, and on top to an add-in, which you will not necessarilly have.
If your Excel is working fine, try the repair installation of Studio (from Control panel - add/remove programs or software, depends on your Windows version).
If this does not help, delete after backuping the following files:
C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\BaseSettings.xml
C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\UserSettings.xml
This paths are for Vista/Win7
For WinXP it will start with c:\documents and settings\user_name\application data\sdl...

LoadBehavior Sep 24, 2010

Below the Office you will see: 11.0; 12.0; 14.0....Access-Common-Delivery-Excel.

Click on the Excel and you will see.

You need to enable the display of hidden and system folders Sep 24, 2010

Eleonora

If you cannot find these folders, you probably have not enabled the display of hidden folders.
Follow the instructions in KB article 3330 to correct this situation:

The paths vary depending on your OS Sep 24, 2010

Which OS do you have?

As Jerzy explained, the paths are different for Win XP and for Vista/Win7:

In Windows 7 it is:

c:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\

and in Windows XP it is:

c:\Documents and Settings/\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\

>your user name> stands for the username you use to login

Hi Walter,

I have Windows XP Professional SP2. I followed the path but the folder is not there.
