MS Office XP (fully patched)
Trados ver 6.5.2.417 (build 417)

I have been using Trados v 6.5 with no problems for the past 18 months or so. A couple of days I reinstalld the software and, after a few teething troubles (i.e. manually relocating the trados .dot file to the correct startup folder etc) I managed to get everything running. However, every time I move to a new TU, I get a brown error message (-1073741818) (-1073741819) (null) - aside from this all functionality seems to be restored.

I have searched the Trados forum and seen that registration may be a problem, I have repeated registration and the problem remains.

I am using a dongle licence, so there shouldn't be any problem with this.

can anyone suggest how I can get rid of this bothersome error message?

MultiTerm? Apr 23, 2005

Hi Alexander,
Are you using MultiTerm? If yes - which version (full version number, please)?

You may want to consider upgrading to build 441, though.

Best, Ralf

Hi Alexander,
6.2.0.267 (build 267)

Hmmm... my suspicion was that you might have been using a later version - IIRC Workbench build 417 and MTiX build 267 were compatible.

Is there an update available, if so where can i download it?

The current Workbench version is build 441; the current MTiX version is build 287. Downloads are available from TranslationZone; however, you may need to first contact Trados to get the upgrade from build 417 to 438/439 before you can apply the latest patch.

Best regards,
Ralf

have a similar problem with "illegal index" -2147467259... in 441 FL version Apr 25, 2005

with a perfectly normal TM starting to misbehave. The error comes up, when no translation can be found for the segment open - which is VERY uncomfortable if one tries to pretranslate big stuff ...-

I recreated the TM by exporting and building from scratch - same effect. I reinstalled the patch - same thing.

There ARE TMs around, however, which (still?) do not misbehave in this fashion, so it must be something in the TM.

No, Im not using MultiTerm

smo

PS: maybe this should be a new topic, but otoh it's pretty much a similar subject. Any hint to trados own places with the information about this kind of strange events would be also welcome.

I will install them later when I have a break in work and post the results.

Many thanks to all who contributed suggestions etc.

... seems to have fixed all problems.

Incidentally, I noticed that the above problem affected interaction with multiterm.

Although it appeared to have no real effects on how Trados itself worked (files were translated, analysed, cleaned etc.), I noticed that it wasn't finding Multiterm terms that I knew were in the Termbase being used at the time.

Just a point to mention.


Anyway as I said, thanks to all who contributed to the posting.

Cheers.

Sandy
