My Transit 3 (Smart version) is unable to open the dictionary incorporated in a pxf file: when I choose receive project, it starts opening the received dictionary and then a data conversion error message appears. The dictionary is usable to some extent: in the language pairs the words that are in the dictionary appear in red, and I can insert the translation with Alt+T - however, I cannot look things up in the dictionary, and I cannot add new terms.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall the program, to no avail.
The pxf file is all right, the client confirmed that no such thing happened on her side (even when opening it with Transit Satellite).
Does anyone have an idea what configuration I should change?

Before uninsatlling, I moved everything into a back-up folder; when I copied back the previous projects to the working folder (Transit/Projects), they could not be added as reference projects to the current project, only as reference folders. How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance,
Attila

Error receiving project Mar 4, 2006

When I try to open any Transit project (*.pxf) "Error receiving project" appears.. Hm.. Any ideas?..

Maybe the matter is that during the installation there was an error when copying the file "mdac...", but later I reinstalled Transit and no errors appeared.. I'm confused..

pxf files are just renamed zip files Mar 4, 2006

Try to rename the extension to ".zip" and see what happens - if the file is not a valid zip one, it is corrupted; if it is OK, you can see what is "inside"
