Hi, I have a problem every time I try to clean/pretranslate files, any format, since WB tells me: "The process
cannot access the file because it is being used by another process". The error number is (32).

I used to solve it restarting the PC, but it does not work anymore. I´m currently trying to pretranslate some INX files and I´ve noticed that a temp rtf file in windows temp folder even after rebooting and deleting any temp files. I´ve also made sure there´s WINWORD process running.

It seems to be a system error, but don´t know how to solve it.

It´s really annoying, any ideas, please?

Virus Scanner? Apr 4, 2007

Dubloc, you might want to try (temporarily) disabling your virus scanner.

HTH,

I´ve tried, that´s not the problem. Besides, the error message is thrown randomly, there´s no logic on it.

I tried this morning, first thing I did after turning on my PC, and "file is being used". Then I tried later after having used TagEditor and some other applications and it worked!.

But as I said, it´s really annoying not being able to use this feature when I neady it.

As far as I know, winword shouldn't be running, especially if you are pretranslating word files. It's happened to me. Press ctrl+alt+ del to access task manager and make sure winword is not running. If it is, highlight it and press end process...

My mistake, I meant "I´ve also made sure there´s **NO** WINWORD process running."

Thanks anyway

embedded picture Apr 27, 2007

Dubloc:
Did you ever solve this problem? It just arose for me today for the first time ever!!
Since none of the things suggested to you worked for you, I went back into the document and deleted an embedded "WORD.PICTURE" that I had spied there; then no problem with the cleaning process.

Hope that helps. -Alan

I had the same problem, but removed some embedded Excel worksheets during clean-up, and it was fine...

Illustration caused the problem in my case Sep 8, 2007

After struggling tonight with the total inability to clean a file and the same message that you got, I had the good luck to read your comments, which put me on the right track: an illustration had to be thrown out of the file, before Workbench would consider cleaning it. No problem once the culprit was gone.
I use a brand new computer with Vista operating system and Word 2007 (the file was saved as Word 1997-3 format). I wonder if the hypersensitivity is a Word 2007-issue...

Same error message with .ttx file Aug 18, 2008

I just had the same error message with a .ttx file in Tag Editor in Trados 2007 as well as in version 6.5. It was displayed when I tried to save the translated file.

The problem in my case was that I had selected a wrong .ini file. I had several .ini files with the same name and selected one with empty settings. When selecting another copy of the file I did not get an error message anymore and was able to save the file.

Embedded picture - Thank you to Alan Sep 21, 2008

I would like to thank Alan for his suggestion to remove an embedded picture. I have been experiencing problems this evening cleaning up a document and stumbled across this thread.
I have removed the embedded picture and cleanup works just fine now!
Thanks for saving my evening!

Another solution Feb 4, 2009

Hi,
I would like to share with you another way of solving this problem:

Go to Workbench > Options > Translation Memory Options > Tools.

Deselect the option Keep backup and press OK.

Cleanup the file.

Remember to select the option Keep backup again, otherwise your documents will not be backed up.

I found the solution on the following web page (in Italian):

http://trados.vertere.net/blog/index.php/2009/01/errore-32-the-process-cannot-access-the-file-because-it-is-used-by-another-process/

HTH,
Branka

Deselect the backup option! Feb 19, 2009

Thanks, Branka!

I have also found that (sometimes), saving the offending file as an rtf myself from word, then cleaning the rtf can work.

Good Luck to all!
