Since I have installed SDL Trados studio 2015 on a second computer, I get an error message once in a while when I try to open an sdlXliff file :

"le processus ne peut pas accéder au fichier 'C: (...) sdlxliff' car il est en cours d'utilisation par un autre processus". ("The process cannot access file 'C: (...) sdlxliff' as it is being used by another process")

If a try again a few seconds later, it usually then opens normally. The same error message appears once in a while, while I am working on the document and the automatic saving runs. Then if I try to save manually a few seconds later, it usually saves the document normally.

I have the same problem when I try to open an SDL Package received from a client, but worse, as it appears each and every time I try, and I cannot open any package.

I have tried to re-install SDL Trados Studio but the problem remains...

Would anybody have encountered the same problem and found a solution ? Many thanks for any help !

Have a nice day

I have exactly the same problem regarding Studio package files coming from a customer. I deleted all prior files to make sure nothing was in process but I still get the same error message and I'm unable to open the package. I'm using the free-lance version but it should not make any difference. Any help is welcome.

Solution for package opening issues in Studio Dec 1, 2016


This seems to be a bug in Studio.

The following solution worked for me but you need to move the old settings folder to a different location. Renaming it and leaving it at the same place did not work.

I hope it helps.
