Error message in SDL Studio 2011 -- Service 'Sdl.TranslationStudio.Api.ProjectManagement.IProjectMa

We have a specific issue because of which we cannot open Trados Studio 2011 at all currently, i wonder if anyone could help us on this:

It is an error message that reads: Service 'Sdl.TranslationStudio.Api.ProjectManagement.IProjectManagementService' could not be started.

1. We have tried the solutions suggested by the SDL Knowledge base however it was for Trados 2009 so we still can't solve the issue:

2. I've also tried the following, but it didn't work either:
Locate and remove the following XML files (make sure you have closed SDL MultiTerm and SDL Trados Studio first) from following folder:
> Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER- Should be]
> Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER - should be]
> - BaseSettings.xml
> - plugincache.xml
> - UserSettings.xml

None of the above solutions worked so far, any chance anyone could help on this urgent matter please?

Access to the drive? Mar 11, 2013

Usually I get this error when I'm VPNing and I'm not connected to the drive where the projects are stored.

Hi Marie,

It seems the cause of the issue is that Trados had been shut down improperly or when a power surge occurs.

It's connected to local drive so I don't think VPN is the problem.

We will have a remote session with SDL support and if the solution is helpful we will be sharing it in this forum.
