I ordered (333710) and payed SDL Trados studio 2014 (starter edition).
I downloaded the 334 Mbyte file, I executed this file, I accepted the terms of the licence agreement,
I got the message “Set-up has completed successfully”.
After: Start>All Programs> SDL> I do not find “SDL Trados Studio 2014” under SDL as I should according to the activation video.

Do you have a Studio icon... Apr 1, 2014

... on your desktop?

Maybe also check here in windows explorer:

c:\Program Files (x86)\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\Studio3\SDLTradosStudio.exe

If this file is missing then something is wrong with the installation completely. In this case I suggest you log a case through the solution finder.

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
