I have Trados Studio 2009 Freelance Plus. I was previously able to open PDF documents for translation just fine but when I try to open any PDF file now (even a file I have already opened in Trados Studio at some point in the past), I always get the message "Error when pre-tweaking file: Failed to load C:\Program files (x86)\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\Studio 1\SolidFramework\Framework".

The problem could be related to my OS (Windows 7) because the copy of Trados Studio 2009 I have installed on my laptop (OS Windows Vista) can open PDF files just fine.
