When I try to load one of my termbases I get the following error message:

"There was a problem opening the termbase at "C:....... . Check that this is a valid termbase
and that you have permission to access it."

All other termbases open fine. The termbase in question will open in Multiterm and I can edit/create entries without problem.

I have just installed Studio and Multiterm 2011. All the termbases that open properly were created in Multiterm 2009. The one that will not open is a termbase I created yesterday using Multiterm 2011.

Thanks in advance.
