I have purchased and successfully installed SDL Trados Freelance 2007.
After having installed it I got the installation guide with the program!
As I am new to all this I wonder if I should install MultiTerm in the same folder in 'program files' as Trados or in a different folder?
It's too late to find out afterwards ...
Kind regards Marianne Sørensen

No problem with different folders Apr 6, 2007

I installed Trados and Multiterm in separate folders – the ones proposed by the setup programs.
Good luck!

Thanks for your reply Apr 6, 2007

Thank you!
I didn't know how closely integrated they were.
When I installed SDL Trados the installation guide suggested a wrong folder - so this has made me careful.

The best is (IMHO): Apr 6, 2007

install to the default folder.
In this way everything will work as it should.

Regards
Jerzy

Is it so simple? Apr 6, 2007

Thank you for replying, Jerzy

It just doesn't seem so simple to me.
When I installed SDL Trados Freelance 2007 the setup program suggested I installed the program in a folder under 'Documents and settings'.
I thought this must be wrong and chose 'Program files' instead.
For this reason I just wondered what the default folder would be for installation of MultiTerm?
I am not familiar with Windows XP folder system, but I suppose I'll just have to try and see what happens.

Sorry, but you are mixing things up Apr 6, 2007

What you've downloaded from SDL is not the installation file itself, but a compressed archive, which is first decompressed to the file selected. Where you decompress it, does not matter - only if you will notice his for further installations. The file location you were asked for is also not the installation path of Trados or Multiterm!
Even it looks like the file downloaded would be the installer itself, because after decompressing it starts the installation procedure itself, it is not the installer!
You can check it by looking at your chosen location - you'll find an installere there (a setup-file). And look then in the folder "Programm files\SDL International\" - you will have Trados and Multiterm (and SDLX too) installed there.

Hope it is a bit clearer now
Jerzy

Could be Apr 6, 2007

Hi Jerzy

I downloaded the file to the desktop first ansd was then asked where to install it, at "Documents and settings"?
I chose 'program files'
I really appreciate your help - I'm used to much simpler procedures where I understand what's going on.
But maybe these times are over ...
Windows XP's user and administrator options are confusing for a person who started with very simple computer in 1988.
Have I done something wrong in chosing the 'program files' for installation?

Kind regards Marianne
