I just installed the SR2 for both Studio 2015 and MultiTerm 2015. When I tried to open a termbase, I get this message:
The termbase at C:\ ... .sdltb is already open.
Continue opening termbases?
In fact, I don't have any termbase open yet. This happens right when I try opening the first termbase after opening MultiTerm.
Any help would be much apprciated

Does the problem stay after you restart the PC? Mar 10, 2016


What happens after you sign out and in again or restart the PC? Do you still get this message?

If yes, I would suggest that you delete the .ldb and .mt? files for this termbase and keep only the.SDLTB file. Then try again.

Thanks for your trying to help Walter.
The problem stayed after rebooting my system. I tried removing all files that are not .sdltb, (2 .mdf files and 2 .mtf files), and the same problem happened. Although there wasn't any .ldb that I could find in my Termbases folder.
