Last week my computer broke down. Fortunately, I had a backup and my documentation was not lost.

The technician replaced everything (Motherboard, Processor, RAM, graphic card) and installed Windows 8 Professional 64-bit. The installation of Trados 2007 went without hiccups, but then nothing was working. When opening a TM, the message "(5): Access denied" appears, in Word (Office Home and Business 2010 32-bit) the Trados bar is missing, and Synergy tells me it has stopped working.

Can anybody help? Thank you, Gabriele

Problem solved Feb 9, 2013

Dear Colleagues,

The problem has been solved.

1. The advanced security features of Windows 8 prevented the access.
2. The Trados bar appeared, after I copied the Trados template into another folder.

Kind regards, Gabriele

Does Trados 2007 work well on Windows 8 Virtual PC? Feb 11, 2013

Congratulations on solving the problem!

I've just joined ProZ a few days ago, being looking forward to spending time on ProZ. This morning my computer has broken. I'm trying to get a new PC, but worrying whether Trados versions are compatible with Windows 8. I got information on ProZ site that Trados Studio 2011 works well on Windows 8 but still worrying about Trados 2007. Do somebody know Trados 2007 works well on Windows 8 Virtual PC? If so, I will buy Windows 8 Pro just in case.

no problem Feb 13, 2013

Anything that ran on Windows 7 will run just fine in the Windows 8 desktop environment. You can also install it in compatibility mode if the installation fails otherwise. Should be just fine.

security features Windows Jun 28, 2013

Hi Gabriele,
How did you manage to change the Securities features in Windows? I get the error message "Access denied" when opening a segment in Word 2007 many times along the document, and that never happened on my previous Windows 7 environment.... THanks in advance!
