I bought SDL Trados Studio 2014 Freelance and I can't install it.
My steps (I have Windows 8):
1. I uninstalled the trial SDL Trados Version I had
2. I disabled the User Account Control (UAC) for Windows 8
3. I switched off my Antivirus
4. I tried to install SDL Trados Studio but I doesn't work.
I become this error message, but I dont know how to generate a "debug log" (What is this?).
Please help!! I need to install the software! Thank you

Content of the error message:
An error occurred and the program was aborted. You can try running the program again but if the same problem repeats, please generate a debug log (usually found in the logs subdirectory of the application data directory) and contact technical support.

Log a support case. Feb 26, 2014

Go to the Knowledgebase;

Then go to the tab called Solution Finder and now go here;

Download & Installation Problems
- I use SDL Trados Studio and/or SDL MultiTerm 2009, 2011 or 2014
-- I receive an error message during installation
--- I have disabled UAC during installation / I do not have Win Vista 7/8
---- None of the error messages match my issue / I tried the suggested resolution....

So if you have tried everything suggested, when you get to this point you'll be presented with a form to contact support. Complete all the fields in the form making sure your email address is entered correctly or nobody will be able to get back in touch with you.

I hope this helps.
