Using Windows 8.1, PC was initialized on Oct 27, then Studio 2014 SP2 and Multiterm 2014 SP2 were reinstalled. But even a double click the shortcut has not start Multiterm. A double click was recognixed by the Multiterm program and a sand clock appeared for several seconds and then disappeared. There was no error message shown. Just there has not been any response after a double click. I have tried deleting and reinstalling Mutliterm many times, but there has not have any successful opening Multiterm. I am not sure if there is an compatibility problem between the environment of MS Windows 8.1 with the newest patch on Multiterm 2014. There is no comopatibility problem with other tools so far. Please help with this situation; otherwise, I canno use Studio.

Problem was caused by existence of Canon printer Oct 29, 2015

With the help of SDL customer service, the solusion was found, which is simmilar to KB #3884 in SDL knowlege database. I have heard that a Canon printer-installed PC is likely to have a trouble in using Multiterm 2014.

Below is the instruction given by SDL. Below can be applied to kinds of pblelems related to Canon printer. Please try it, but it is written in Japanese.
