I am a complete newbie to Trados. I've downloaded the 30 day free trial of Trados Studio 2009 SP3 and opened one of its sample documents. When I try to open the sample termbase I get the message: The termbase "Printer Termbase" could not be connected so term recognition cannot use this termbase". When I try to add the termbase by going add-browse I get the message "the termbase cannot be opened because it has been opened with an unsupported version of Multiterm". So it seems it's a problem with Multiterm, but I'm not sure. And I don't even know if Multiterm comes with the free trial.

I've tried lots of things to solve this, but all to no avail. I'd be very grateful for any advice.

Thank you
