I am trying to do a job in TagEditor, but am having problems connecting TagEditor to Workbench. Both seem to work fine separately, but I just don't seem to be able to connect them. The Workbench button on the toolbar in TagEditor remains grayed out.

I recently purchased a new laptop and installed both Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus and Trados 2007 Freelance on it as I still frequently receive jobs which need to be completed in Trados 2007. I run Windows 7. I am wondering if my TagEditor problem could somehow be caused by license issues - that perhaps I should have returned a license on my old laptop (which I don't think I did) or something. Any ideas?

check languages Jan 23, 2013

first check the language pair of TagEditor file and the one in TM. I sometimes get the TM in EN (US) and TagEditor is in EN (GB). I don't think that the licence causes the issue.

Account with limited user rights? Jan 23, 2013

You are working on an account with limited user rights?

The Trados programmers never handled correctly the user rights, so why e.g. Trados behaves like that on the so called "Limited account" in Windows XP.
The minimum required standard level is Power User.

Tools - Connect to Workbench

But surely you have tried that in TagEditor, haven't you?

Still no luck troubleshooting Jan 24, 2013

Thank you all for your feedback.

Tools -> Connect to Workbench was obviously the first thing I tried. Not working. In fact, that option is also grayed out on the menu.

The language pair doesn't seem to be the issue either. They are both the same language.

As for user rights, I am not sure if this is the cause. How would I check that?
