Hi all,
I am in BIG trouble:
I migrated to a new computer two weeks ago and only now I am starting to work in Trados again.
My old set-up:
Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit, Office 2007, Trados Studio SP2
Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, Office 2010, Trados Studio SP3

First I could not open the program due to error:
"Unexpected exception when getting view part instance of view part Term Recognition".
So I googled, found an answer here on Proz and deleted the XML files in the 9.1.1 folder

The program starts now and as soon as I open Editor, I get:
"Font arial does not support style regular"
which keeps me from opening anything else!

Has anyone experienced the same?

Arial Black Dec 22, 2013

I met the same problem recently due to an unknown reason. I found this thread and followed Holyass's (thank you) solution. unfortunately, I can't find any arial regular on the internet. suddenly, I hit a post somewhere else saying Arial Black can do the work. I tried and the problem disappeared.
