Hello, I have recently purchased SDL Trados 2011 Freelance.

I cannot open my SDL Multiterm. It always shows this message
'unexpected exception when initializing the view part' and 'Invoke or BeginInvoke cannot be called upon control until the window handle has been created'

Could you please advise.

Thank you.

Try restarting your computer Mar 14, 2012

Hi Eva,

I had exactly the same problem today, and it seems to have been fixed by just closing everything and restarting my computer.
(If in doubt...)

Best wishes,
