About a week ago we purchased Trados 2014, but quickly ran into problems (as usual). First of all, the termbases are extremely slow. Second, when trying to view a PTT as target, we get the following error:

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation

Below the complete error.

Since we can Save the Target and open that file in PowerPoint, I assume that Trados is not allowed to open an PowerPoint window. I have searched the Internet, but could not come with a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Stupid, but helps with stupid errors in many cases.

In many cases it does, but... Dec 8, 2013

I have restarted the computer, reinstalled Office, reinstalled .NET and prayed to all deities I know, but still get the same error. Ironically, opening the file in OpenOffice, saving it as OO file and working with that file in Trados doesn't give any problem, so it has to be Trados Studio not being able to communicate well with Office.
