Transit 3.0 Satellite PE: Problem with project

I've been using the Satellite version of Transit for 2 1/2 years with no problems. I don't really like it much personally, but it has been reliable at least.

Now I received a new project from the same client and Transit is experiencing problems. "CPU Usage" on my Windows XP machine stays pegged at 100%, and Transit is the culprit. The process "SatellitePE.exe" is constantly above 90% CPU usage. I can translate segments, but TermStar seems to be having major problems.

I've done the usual checks for computer viruses, etc. but can't find anything wrong on my machine. The Transit executables haven't been maliciously modified either.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem?

I also noticed there is a new Service Pack 24 for Transit and TermStar. I wonder if compatibility with the Satellite PE version was somehow lost? It dates to 2001 (no updates since then).

Project related problem Jan 12, 2009

Hi Gary,

I work with Transit Smart, but never experienced such problem. It looks like project related, not Transit or computer. Try to check to work with other projects, perhaps the older ones you still have. If it is OK, then ask the client to send you newly created project. Maybe this helps.

Thanks + prices Jan 12, 2009

Thanks, Ladislav!

I'm getting through the project, and hopefully my computer won't burn up before it's done (unfortunately not a joke).

I tested the same PXF file with a new installation on a different machine and the same problem occurs. The client contacted Transit Support and it sounds like their suggestion is to buy something called "Transit Next".

Does anybody have any idea about Transit prices? If they aren't confidential information, they are certainly well hidden on the website.

Transit NXT + Prices Jan 15, 2009

Hi Gary,

since I don't use Transit Satellite PE, I cannot really help you with your problem, sorry.

But if you're interested in Transit NXT (reads like "next"), alias Transit 4.0, the most recent version of Transit, you may contact STAR Group America, LLC (see contact below).

STAR Group America, LLC
Headquarters US
5001 Mayfield Road, Suite 220
Lyndhurst, Ohio 44124

Telephone: +1 216 691 7827
Fax: +1 216 691 8910

BTW, Transit NXT is not compatible with Transit Satellite and the latter is not going to be supported anymore (after all it's basically free and STAR doesn't make any money with it).

The price tag for Transit NXT may vary based on extras, filters, etc., and/or if it's an upgrade or completely new licence. But I guess it may go us high as 1500 USD for a complete version. Have a look at where you'll find feature presentations and interactive movies.

BG, Gabriel Rosa
