Out of the blue, my Studio 2009 stopped working. When I try to run it, it starts to load the plugins, then it stops. The following error message pops up:

Studio 2009 sdlerror-2012219
An unexpected error has occurred when loading the application plug-ins.

hexadecimal value 0x00 is an invalid character. Line 1, position 1.
Type System.Xml.Xml Exception...

SourceUri plugincache.xml

any help?

Thanks a lot

delete the .xml file Feb 19, 2012

Close Studio. Delete or rename these three xml files:

BaseSettings.xml, Plugincache.xml, UserSettings.xml
You'll find them them here if you use Win7:

C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\\

Restart Studio.
