When opening this very large .txt file in SDL Trados Studio 2011, I first chose the option to open .txt.

And it works well to open all four columns from the original Excel source document in Studio. But, I can't hardly touch the Studio-window/UI, as soon as I do that the application shuts off, and I receive these error messages (2 immediately after each other):

Cannot validate SDL plug-in: Sdl.Desktop.Platform.
Sdl.Desktop.Platform.Version=, Culture=
neutral, PublicKeyToken=00000000000 : C:\
Program Files\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\Studio2\

Microsoft .NET Framework
Unhandled exception has occurred in your application.
If you click Continue, the application will ignore
this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit,
the application will close immediately.

The type initializer for
Manager' threw an exception.


Does it have to do with memory limitations (I have only Intel Celeron M and 2 GB RAM)? Or could there be any other problems? I can open it, and view the Chinese characters, they are all displayed correctly.
