Due to different kind of problems with SDL Trados my advice is to keep your current version of SDL Trados FL.

I have just downgraded to 7.5.0.756 and MT 7.1.0.361

I first installed Java runtime (j2sdk-1_4_2_14-windows-i586-p.exe) from https://sdlc5e.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=32B7E28B8F1F79CA89E51D011DF669FF

Now everything works 100 %.

Remember to install MT after you have installed WB

I went for less... May 18, 2007

...which is possibly as precarious as 2007 itself: I use twb 2007, MT 2007, and the old WinAlign and TagEditor. I dont feel comfortable about moving back to MT 2006 version.

Money back May 18, 2007

I am planning to claim my money back for Trados FL 2007. I have not been able to use the software, so why should I pay for it?

These are the sort of reported problems... May 18, 2007

... that have kept me from installing the upgrade released last month, especially since I was in the middle of a 65,000 word project and I didn't want to come face to face with any surprises.

I wouldn't go so far as to ask for my money back, however I WILL wait until the furore dies down a bit and I can confirm that the program upgrade is fully operational.

Good luck to us all...

And thanks to those who have been brave enough to try working with it so that they can find out the kinks!

Cheers all!

Lina

Salvatorian approach preferred... May 19, 2007

... and I would prefer to have the product do what It's supposed to, and that is clean up its XP act and get compliant with Vista. Getting 90 € back just means cutting the costs, but it definitely does not solve the problem we may have to face sooner or later,

In any case I went and dusted off my wordfast license.
Regards
