I have downloaded my Trados files onto another PC, but I am unable to install Trados.
There are 661 different files and I don't know which one I should be 'clicking on'. I have tried contacting Trados directly but have not received any reply.

Any help would be most welcome!

The version is Freelance 6.5 with Word 2003.

Many thanks

Problems installing Trados Feb 6, 2008

When I click on setup.exe a WinXip box appears with Unzip and Run WinZip buttons, pressing UnZip just unzips the files again and pressing Run WinZip takes me to the WinZip box again! I just seem to be going round in circles!

Just a thought... Feb 6, 2008

Have you extracted all files to a new folder?

I have had this problem in the past, you download a software (which is usually a compressed .zip file), then doubleclick on setup.exe and it won't work. I think the problem is that you try to run setup.exe within the .zip file.

If you extract all files first to a seperate folder then run setup.exe it may work.

Hope this helps
