We are using SDL Trados Studio 2014 (3.1.4085.0) with Office 2013.
Since a while one employee cannot add *.doc files with the Wizard or afterwards anymore.
Trados appears to be stuck during the "Determine filetype" step. But in reality it opens the "Save As" dialog box from Microsoft Word in the background.

We installed Trados completely new, but that didn't help.

Anyone found a way around this?
