I really hope someone can help. I had Trados 2011 Studio installed on my laptop with Windows 8. Unfortunately I caught a virus. Once I got rid of the virus I tried to open Trados a couple of days later, but only got the following error message. The heading of the error message says (in German): The indicated service is not an installed service (Exception HRESULI: 0x80070424). So, since then I have downloaded the package several times and installed it; the set up always seems to be successful, but I keep on getting the same error message anytime I try to open the program. Please help. I have NO idea what to do now.
