Original files, MIF from FrameMaker 12. Windows 7 Ultimate.

It is not possible to generate target translations neither using individual files and "save target as" nor in a batch task.
(We generated target translations for some of the languages in the project but cannot do it for other languages, all of them Western ones.)

Some of the error messages:

Could not find file 'C:\... AppData\Local\Temp\SDLTempFileManager\55fvcdzd.mt3'
Could not find file 'C:\...\AppData\Local\Temp\SDLTempFileManager\smo45tk0.50e'

and so and so on.

Temporary files? Apr 9, 2014

This has happened to me (I also have Windows 7 Ultimate ed.) when I have been away from Studio for a while, without closing the program, and temporary project files have been deleted by some task running in the background. I have been using Studio for 3 years, and this never happened before. It began happening 3 or 4 months ago, and I wonder if it has something to do with some Windows update.

Solving the problem required redefining the project, and automatically translating the files again, because everything was in the TM.

Now I never walk away from the computer without doing a Save and closing the Editor, or closing Studio.
