I have just purchased SDL Studio 2009 Freelance to substitute my old Trados 6.5. The package includes SDL Studio 2007, Studio 2009 and Multiterm 2009. I installed 2007 tonight prior to installing 2009. No problem. Activation completed successfuly. I only noticed that Passolo did not install (apparently it is part of the package as per installation guide). But, when I clicked on the icon to start the program, I got the system error: Error in SDL Trados Synergy. The application will be closed.
I have tried to disintall and reinstall, but still no joy.
On the other hand I can open and work with all the Trados files in the package (version 8.x) and my old one 6.5 (obviously not all at the same time) and SDL 2007 has been installed in a different directory in Programs
Then, when I tried to install Studio 2009, the system encountered an error and the installation was closed.
I run Windows XP HomeSP3 which is automatically updated.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem after installation? If so, how was it solved. Could not find anything similar in SDL knowledge base. I sent a message to my SDL contact but won't have an answer until after the week-end. So any suggestion would be most welcome.
Thank you
