THis has happened after my computer went through a forced update. The Trados symbol disappeared from the menu bar, and in the large project I was working on right when I was interrupted by the restart, the same error message appears whenever I click on a segment (both confirmend and empty segments get the same messages : "la référence d'un objet n'es pas définie à une instance d'un objet" and then "TM update failed")

I have restarted SDL and the computer, but the error messages still appear, and I have created a new project, but the error messages still appear again.

Please help meicon_frown.gif

Dear Ms Bonnafous,

This is Guillaume from SDL.

Could you tell me what is the operating system of your computer?

Kind regards,
