..I receive this error message at the end of the preparation process when I try to create a project it is an error message to Apply PerfectMatch, Analyze Files, Pre-translate Files and Populate Project translation memories.

Has any one had this problem before? Is there a workaround?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Check the location of your project folder Dec 6, 2013


I suggest you check the location of your project folder to see whether there may be any conflict with existing files. Normally "Create project" creates a new empty folder, so that there should not be any conflicts of this sort.

Try to create the project again with a different name for the project folder.
