I installed SDL MultiTerm 2007 today, when I started SDL MultiTerm to create a termbase, a warning message with "unknown error" comes out. I tried to create a termbase many times but I failed. The warning message came out every time I created a termbase.

What is wrong with my SDL MultiTerm? Who can give me some suggestions or revolutions, thank you!

Your operating system? Oct 23, 2010

In my Vista (both 32 and 64) you have to make sure that "User Account Control' is turned off for Multiterm to work.

My error is different but this may help.

Good luck!
