Hi there,
I've just downloaded Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus and when I click on the program to run it I get the following message:
[filepath]SDLTradosStudio2001_SP1.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
I have Windows XP and was using Freelance 2007 up until today.
I tried going into the live chat on the SDL website but all they said was that it should be compatible on xp 32 or 64 bit.
Does anybody know how to fix this?

Zoltán is most probably right on this one. Try do re-download the software, possibly with Mozilla Firefox or with an FTP client.

I can confirm that Studio runs on 64-bit systems without any problems.
