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?

This problem was sold after downloading and installing several "Arial Regular" fonts.

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.
