My Trados Studio 2011 SP2 is crashing, quite often, when I attempt to add a new term to my TB directly from the editor window. This also used to happen before I updated to SP2 (in both Studio 2011 and Studio 2009).
Is there a fix for that?

hi mirekk,
it could be due to the fact that you don't open Studio with the Java Runtime engine enabled.
go to Options, it is the last item of the list.

if I don't enable it when adding terms, I get an error message.
hope my hint works for you!

Why a setting for disabling start of JRE? Aug 18, 2012

Just curious: why is there a setting that lets you disable starting of JRE if JRE is needed by Studio? The question is not directed to you, Lorenzo. I hope SDL can answer it!

hi Dominique. I can tell you some facts about this based on my usage.
on my old XP computer I have to enable the Java Runtime engine to add terms to a Termbase.
but... on my new Windows 7 laptop, I can add terms without any problems with Java disabled.

in fact, for security reasons, it is much better to have Java disabled (banking malaware, etc.). Studio 2011 SP2 continues to need Java 6 build 24, while the most recent update is Java 7 build 5, and it is very unsafe for your computer to use an outdated version of Java.

kind regards!

Yes, Studio 2011 installs Java 6 Update 24, but that doesn't mean it can't use a newer version if there's one. See this post of mine from last month. Since then, I have upgraded my Java 6 to Update 33 and Studio 2011 doesn't seem to have objected.

I'm using Java 7 update 5 with Studio 2011 SP2, without enabling the Java Runtime engine when the application starts, and adding terms works fine!
