When trying to add a new term to MultiTerm, I get the following error message:

Application Blocked by Security Settings

Name: EditController
From: file:/C:/Program Files/Common Files/SDL/.../

Your security settings have blocked a local application from running

I haven't fiddled with any security settings since last time I entered a new term into MultiTerm without any hassle. However, I recently updated Java - might that have something to do with this error?

Any advice as to what it is I need to change?

This appears to be an exercise in frustration over the years. However, SDL has written a helpful article on the subject. I hope it helps!

java setting May 16, 2013

Hello,

I applied the setting suggested by SDL, and after clickliing aplly and ok it seemed all has been resolved. but was not.
Infact, after I tried again to add a term, the usal message (of blocked ...) appeared again, and when I checked again the settings in Java, the security was again like at origin.

It seems that w8 or w7 have a control system indipendently. Could this be done by IE 10 ?

Any suggestion ?

Best

Roberto

I followed the instruction below, and not only did it solve the immediate problem, it also solved the 'long-term' problem (although SDL Trados said it wouldn't), i.e. I haven't seen the warning since. MultiTerm now works perfectly again.

But then again, I am still running Windows XP, so maybe that makes a difference?

By IE10, do you mean Internet Explorer? Does that have anything to do with Trados/Java at all? If it does, maybe I should mention that I am now using Firefox (as the newest versions of Internet Explorer are not compatible with Windows XP)...

Why don't these people speak together a bit more??

More Info Needed May 16, 2013

Hi Roberto,

Could you let us know what OS you're using Win 7/8 32/64-bit and Java version?
My setup is as follows:

1) Win 7 64-bit, Java 7 update 21 (32-bit) no issue whatsoever

2) Win 8 64-bit, Java 7 update 21 (32-bit) no issue either

3) Security set to Medium

4) As an alternative, I use TermInjector, no issues with it and it's a great plug-in, if not the best ever available on OpenExchange.

HTH,

Bernard

may be I found a solution May 17, 2013

Well

it doesn´t matter which OS is running, as I had this matter both on W7 o W8 64-bit systems.

BUT

What I did yesterday was the following.
I reinstalled the LAST Java update again
I set the security settings for JAVA as suggested by SDL

THEN
I jumped to ControlPanel\All Control panel items\Sistem
there is a tab with safe sistem, where you can set settings for restore points to be abilited or not.
I disabled the check box for monitoring the restore points,

and now all works, both in Trados 2011 and Multiterm 2011.

I don´t know if this is a case or not, so I don´t want to suggest this solution to anybody, but for the moment this solution is working on my machines.
Please note I don´t have OS in english, so the description is a mare translation made from the native language of my OS. Also I don´t think this is a solution, as it can influence negatively or in anoher way the running of other applications rather more important inside the OS´.

I hope it helps
Best Regards

Roberto
