I am using Studio Trados 2015 starter edition from July and encountered a problem. An online termbase the I already used several time refuses to open with the following error massage:

"A connection to SDL MultiTerm Server XXXX could not be established.Opening the termbase failed. It may be already opened in exclusive mode. Attempt the action again after a while"

Can someone help with solution?
