Hello everyone,
I am using Trados I am all of a sudden unable to open one of my TMs. All other TMs open without problems. I copied the TM in question and tried to open it on another computer (using Trados and received the same error message.

All relevant files appear to be there and I definitely have not made any changes to that TM or to Trados.

The only 'major' change I made in recent days is that I upgraded from Powerpoint xp to version 2007 (with all other Office programs remaining xp). However, I have not used ppt/TagEditor or anything in combination with that particular TM since.

I am at a loss what to do now. As I cannot open the file, I obviously can't export the data.
As the most recent back-up is already a few weerks old, I would like to be able to at least salvage the data I have added since.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Petra

I reported the problem ... Nov 12, 2007

... to SDL a week ago.
Unfortunately, I do not have a support contract with them. So I guess it will take a while until I get a reply - and hopefully some help.
If I do find a workable solution, I will post it here.
Thanks, Pavel!

Same problem after unsuccessful reorganisation of the TM Nov 3, 2009

I also get this error 31053 saying Resource not found and I cannot load the TM. Has anyone ever solved this problem? Anyone received any support from SLD?
