Hello everyone!

When I double-click on Trados packages or SDLXLIFF files to open them, they open a new instance of Trados, but the files themselves don't open. I need to manually open them from within Trados. What could the reason/solution be?
I'm using Windows 10 Home and Trados 2017 (updated). I didn't use to have that problem.

Thank you very much!

Alain

A sidestep rather than a workaround Aug 19, 2019

A Studio package is a Winzip file with the suffix changed. Hence, the package can be suitably renamed and opened, and its contents brought into play: source file, TMs, etc.

Regarding the remedying of the problem with the package itself, I have no information, but searching the SDL support portal may yield some useful leads.
