When doing so, I get an error messag saying that tehre is somthing wrong with my file C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\Termbases\MultiTermMtTemplate.mdb

I could not find the folder \Termbases there, so I tried creating the folder and copied the MultiTermMtTemplate.mdb, which I found elsewhere, but then an error message with no text popped up instead.

In both cases SDL Multiterm freezes and I cannot continue.

(I can, however, create new termbases from scratch)

Please does anyone have a clue?

Completely unable to create a termbase Apr 12, 2011

I have the same problem, and the file in question is nowhere to be found on my harddisk (or my server for that matter). I have tried reinstalling MultiTerm and Studio, but to no avail.

The problem is that I am not able to create a termbase at all (since it is my first installation of Trados) and I don't know how to continue to get started using Trados.

Perhaps someone would be so kind as to mail me a copy of MultiTermMtTemplate.mdb?
