Hi everybody,
I have recently come up with this error message when I try opening Trados 2009:

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"


The contents of the error message are as follows:


Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I have also tried uninstalling trados, but I get an error message that says (my translation): impossible opening the patch package. Verify that this package exist or contact the sofware developer to verify that the patch package of windows installer is valid.

By the way, I had this problem also with trados 2011, but, after removing and reinstalling it, the problem with trados 2011 disappeared. Now it remains only for trados 2009, given the fact that I cannot remove it from my pc.

I have seen that maybe a registry key is damaged, but don't know such a key (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812490/en-us)


Hope somebody will help me.
Thank you,
Bruno

Try deleting these files and restarting Oct 1, 2011

Hi,

For Studio 2009 can you try deleting the following files in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0 and restart. If you are using Vista it will be C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\

BaseSettings.xml
plugincache.xml
UserSettings.xml

They will be recreated and it may help.

For the multiterm widget try deleting this file and restarting:

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\WidgetSettings.xml

or

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\SDL\SDL MultiTerm\WidgetSettings.xml

Regards

Paul
