Hello, dear fellows!

I am experiencing a problem in SDLX 2007:

I created a TM in SDLX 2007 Freelance last week and have worked on the text for some time with no problem (EN>>DE). All the functions worked well.

This morning, when trying to periodically update the TM with new segments, I am told that I should "make sure the TM is accessible and not read only".

So, I can enter new translations in the "Edit" mode. Also, it is possible to create a Word file from the SDL file, and the newly entered segments are also shown in the target langugae in this Word file.

But I am unable to "Update" and "Apply" the TM itself in the SDLX "Edit" mode.

Any ideas what I might have done wrong or what might be done to get rid of thisproblem?

Thank you

Now it works Aug 6, 2007

I tried the "Repair" option under Control Panel>>Software, and now it's ok.

Probably, something was missing from the installation.
