Since I have Trados, I’ve always worked with Multiterm perfectly.
But now I changed my computer and have Windows 7. Since then I have the following problem:

When I add a term to the termbase, the add-term-box opens just once, and it seems that I can add a term, but actually it doesn’t add anything.
When further in the text, I try to add another term, this “add-term-box” doesn’t even open anymore and I don’t receive any error message.

I’ve looked at various forums, and I thought it was a Java problem.

=> First I cleared the “Enable the next-generation Java plug-in check box”, saved and restarted the computer, but without result.

=> Then I removed ALL Java versions installed on this computer :
- Java 6 Version 32
- J 2 SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
- J 2 SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 12

After that, I opened Multiterm, and I pressed the Edit button (F2)
I got this message saying that I have to install Java 2 RE SE v 1.4.2._19, which I did.

But nothing has changed !!!

I still cannot add terms. I really need this function quickly, because I’m on a big technical text …
Thank you so much for your help !!
