Hi Folks,

I had another thread going about pre-translation but now something more serious seems wrong with my Studio install.

Nothing I can recall has changed (i.e. computer crash, etc.) but attempting to access

Tools | Options (menu)
Project Setttings (right-click on project)

produces the error message "Unable to find the file specified".

Any ideas?

I can analyse files, translate in Editor, etc. without any problems.

Cheers,


Ed

Rename some folders Mar 19, 2011

Please try to rename the folder SDL Trados Studio you will find in your Documents folder.
If this does not help, delete the BaseSettings.xm and UserSettings.xml, which you can find in your user account in Windows. If you search for any of those names in this forum, you'll find the exact path too.

Hi Jerzy,

Thanks very much for your help!

The renaming the folder seemed to do the trick.

I'm lucky there's people like you on the forum :=)

I'll stick with the new main TM for now I think and fingers crossed for the rest of the translation.

I must admit, last week I was using Workbench 2007 on a VMWare XP through a VPN tunnel to a remote server at a customer and that was a lot easier to set up than this simple project packageicon_wink.gif

Cheers,


Ed
