Hi everyone!

I am trying to open workbench as usual (until yesterday it worked perfectly) and the following error comes up:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime error!
Program: C:\Program Files\TRADOS\T7_FL\TT\TW4Win.ex
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I have read on the forum that this happened to others as well. I followed all the suggestions but nothing works. Any ideas?

I tried to re-install Trados (the same error shows at the end of the installation), Microsoft Visual C++, .NET Framework, clean up my whole pc, checked for viruses, deleted a program I installed yesterday...

I am working on a huge project and need Trados! Please help!

Thank you very much

Trados version: Trados 7 Freelance
Office version: 2003

Problem solved! Jul 30, 2012

Hi Maria,
Yes I did, I tried to post a comment twice but it didn't work.

As I didn't find any solution I thought about the easiest one, restoring my computer to an earlier date and it worked

Hope this helps you too.

Regards from Spain

Same problem! Jan 30, 2013

Unfortunately, my PC won't restore to earlier checkpoint for some strange reason. Did anyone else have this problem and manage to solve it?
