Hi All,

I started a termbase yesterday and today, after some automatic updates were installed on the pc last night, I can no longer add new terms to it. The error message 'Multiterm is unable to add the entry' appears. Multiterm 2014 SP2 and Studio 2014. I have restarted the pc - no good. I can't find answers in 'old' threads about this topic, as it's no longer supposed to have anything to do with Java, as I've understood it? Thanks for any suggestions.

An hour later: now I get: 'Cannot access a disposed object. Object name: WebBrowser'. Help!

A day later: is there anybody out there who can give me an idea what to do, please?

I have the same (or a similar problem). I am not sharing my termbase with anyone. I am the only one using it (I work on my own), so it is not caused by sharing as I seem to have read in other posts.
Multiterm and trados are working, but in a limited way. Each time a saved lexical item comes up in the translation, multiterm proposes the preferred translation, but I cannot save new lexical items either directly in trados 2014 with "add new term" or by opening multiterm separately.
Not only that, but I now cannot close trados works, but it won't shut down with either the close or exit commands.
Help!! What is happening??
I have seem other related posts but no solution seems to have been found.
