Good day everyone!

I just received an SDL WSXZ file from one of my clients. When I'm trying to open it, a pop-up appears saying 'MultiTerm is unable to create the termbase', and hence I'm unable to open the file. Could anyone provide some help in this regard?

Thanks in advance!

Try changing the name of the package Jan 16, 2019

I've worked with same kind of format as you mentioned, and the PM at the time said that I should change the name of the file format into ".zip" and then unzip the file. It worked for me every time, wish it works for you too!
