Dear Colleagues,

for days now, I am trying to get Multiterm 2009 working with Trados 2007 (SDLTrados2007Suite_FL_863). Every time I open Multiterm 2009 to create a new termbase, it issues the error message 'External component has thrown an exception'. After cleaning the registry, I reinstalled Trados 2007 and Multiterm 2009 several times, without any success. Java runtime env. 6 update 14, MSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser and SDK, Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redist. Sp1 and Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 redist. Sp1 were also removed and reinstalled. I used the program 'RepairSDLMultiTermDesktop2009SP3' published by Richard Pushmann at SDL and it returned the following error report:

Problem executing command: C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe /f {8302F817-9F82-40F2-8149-8BB50B0250F7} /l ".\MTCore_LOG.log"
Problem executing command: C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe /f {EA7AC182-CB13-499B-A9B0-CE64D010A1B2} /l ".\MTExtract_LOG.log"
Problem executing command: C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe /f {48401067-6865-480B-B961-24731C529FDB} /l ".\MTAdmin_LOG.log"
Problem executing command: C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe /f {399F2130-59E1-11DF-9F46-8091DFD72085} /l ".\Studio_LOG.log".

Now, I am at my wits end. Does someone have any ideas?

Below is the error report which is issued when I try to create a new termbase:

Eine externe Komponente hat eine Ausnahme ausgelöst.

Same problem... Dec 20, 2010

Hello everyone..

I was never able to use MT since I bought it. Always saying that it is not compatible with the version when I tried to open a TB. Searching for help I found out that Side by side tools are not installed properly. I've searched and download about 4 patches only today and yet nothing.

While trying to use Side by side from its folder to activate SDLS MT 2009 it went all well till the last two process.

Problem executing command: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe /f {A1CC3003-50E3-4EBA-965A-377250B576BF} /l*v "C:\Arquivos de programas\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\MultiTermSideBySide\Reinstalling 2009 core.log"

Problem executing command: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe /f {6416EEE2-6332-45FC-B63B-8E14F8A73991} /l*v "C:\Arquivos de programas\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\MultiTermSideBySide\Reinstalling Studio 2009.log"

Cheers from Brazil,
