You're seeing bad programming.

No Solution! Apr 9, 2014

Hi Elke,

Did you have the same problem?

I had the support guy call me, and he poked around on mu computer for at while and ascertained that the file worked well on his computer. So, his reply was that it was probably an unfortunate combo of my computer and the (very large) file that caused the problem. Studio is up and running again after he poked around.

So, unfortunately, I cannot say how to solve this issue if you are experiencing it!

a case of unfinished software Apr 10, 2014

it's the kind of error message that SHOULDN'T happen in a finished product - it's meant as help for programmers to find errors at the envelopment stage; if user are greeted with that kind of messages, it means the software was let loose on end users too early.

This may be a case of sloppy programming, but it's not realistic to expect modern software to be shipped faultless (especially since we as translators also make mistakes in our product, even though it's considerably easier to correct translation errors than programming errors).

As a rule of thumb, if you Google the error message and the hits seem to be related to programming in general or something other than CAT tools, the error is a generic framework error and probably doesn't reveal much about the underlying problem (as in there are probably loads of possible causes for the problem, such as with the ubiquitouos "Object reference not set to an instance of an object", which can be caused by pretty much anything). If you run into one of these and need help, it's usually best to also describe what you were doing in Studio in detail, that might give a clue to the cause.

Just had the same message Jul 2, 2014

As for what I was doing? Reopening a project in Studio 2014, about as standard as it gets
