After upgrading to Windows 8, was experiencing a few quirks with Trados Suite 2011 Freelance and Multiterm 2011. So I uninstalled, cleaned registry, and reinstalled both. No problem with Trados but Multiterm appears to have installed correctly - no error msg during installation and icon appears on desktop. However, when I doubleclick the icon, a very quick error window appears stating something like : "Multiterm appears to have stopped working. Windows is looking for a solution to your problem" before disappearing. SDL technician says that everything looks fine and cannot find a solution : Windows technician states that Multiterm 2011 is not compatible with Windows 8.
Does anyone have an idea? - SEADAG

SPs & Java Jan 21, 2013

Hi Yves,

I haven't installed it under Win 8 yet (is running fine under Win 7 64-bit with Java 32-bit (6.24), I would check the following:

1) What SPs have you installed, make sure that SP2 is installed for both Trados and Multiterm

2) Java, if your OS is 64-bit, Java 64-bit may be installed on your computer you may have to download a 32-bit version and/or your version of Java is not compatible with Multiterm
