Hello,

I just downloaded the demo for 'Trados 6.5 Freelance Edition', but when I try to install it I get the following error:

"Error 1308.Source file not found:..."

Here is the screenshot:

Has anyone come across this problem?

Thanks!

How did you extract the installation package? Aug 8, 2004

When extracting the installation package the option "use paths" must be selected, otherwise the files will all be extracted into the same folder - and then the installation will not work.

The best is to create an extra folder to extract the installation package, then extract the files there, keeping the file and folder structure, and then to start the setup program, which is by default located then in this created folder.

HTH
Regards
Jerzy

Thanks Jerzy, but I did extract it to a separate folder before double clicking on the 'setup.exe'. Here is the screenshot of the install directory:

Try to extract it again Aug 8, 2004

What OS do you have? Possibly there is an incompatibility with the file names.

Sorry, but I do not have any more tips for you.

PS
What happens, if you choose ignore? The file not found is only a template for Interleaf documents, which you almost certainly won´t need for testing purposes.

I clicked 'Ignore' about 10 times, and it continued with the installation. Hopefully I wont need those files.

Thanks!
