MyMemory plug-in and text search function have stopped working

I have been using the MyMemory plug-in (SDL Trados 2009 SP3, Windows 7) for a large project for a couple of weeks. Two days ago (June 26th), for some unknown reason, the plug-in stopped working properly, even though it is activated. I can see a search is taking place, which eventually produces no result.

Also, the text search function (find/replace) in the Editor window fails to display. It does open in the background (the icon shows in the task bar), but it wouldn't display on the screen whatever I try.

Has anyone experienced similar problems recently?

Any help on these two matters (which seem to be connected) would be most welcome!

Does MyMemory plug-in work in SDL Trados Studio 2011 + Windows XP also? Nov 28, 2011

Dear Joël,

Do you know if MyMemory plug-in works with SDL Trados Studio 2011 + Windows XP Pro also?

I have installed the file mymemory_plugin_studio_signed.exe that I downloaded,
and tried to use it in my SDL Trados Studio 2011.

But there is no alternative listed for MyMemory when I open the menu Plug-ins ... in SDL Trados Studio 2011.

MyMemory plug-in and Studio 2011 Nov 29, 2011

Dear Fredrik,

I am afraid I will be of no help on this matter, as I still use Studio 2009. As for the problem I experienced, it remember it solved itself a few days later...
As concerns MyMemory plug-in, I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work in Studio 2011 even under XP.
