After double clicking the Trados 2011 Icon, the SW seems to load, but the window doesn't appear, all that I see is the active window icon in the taskbar, and when I click on it I see a flat, rectangular, window which only contains the title line. I've restarted three times, it doesn't help. I tried to reinstall, the same.

I've uninstalled the SW and this doesn't help as well.

My clients are waiting...

2 solutions to restart Studio Nov 18, 2013

Try going to the task manager (right click in the task bar). If Studio is in the applications list, right click it and select "bring to front".

If that doesn't help, then click "finish task" for Studio in the task manager, and then browse here:

C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\

and delete the following three XML files:

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

Now restart Studio.

(Instructions are for Studio 2011 and Win 7)
