I recently purchased SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance Plus + SDL Trados 2007 Suite Freelance and I am having difficulties working with it.

I am using Windows 7 and every time I want to translate a document, after I open it for translation it gives me the error in attachment. saying the following:

TM update failed. Object reference not set to an instance of an object


I am also not able to close the page and I have to restart the computer to be able to close. I have uninstalled and installed it again and it still gives me the same error.


Please help

Best Regards

Biana

Bless your heart! Jul 20, 2013

If not... Jul 23, 2012

... try removing the usual suspects first.

So delete 3 XML files by going to the following path:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[10.0.0.0]

Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[10.0.0.0]

and delete the following three XML files:

- BaseSettings.xml
- plugincache.xml
- UserSettings.xml

In case you cannot see the "AppData" folder, make sure that your folder view is set to "display hidden system folders." Here are step-by-step instructions: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Show-hidden-files.
