I have not found the answer elsewhere, so I'm asking here.

Dear colleagues,

I've had Wordfast in my Word (Windows XP, Word 2002, the Russian language) for about 2 years, but did not use it. Now I need to start translating using Wordfast, but even though I see its toolbar, I cannot run the Setup, as a message pops up saying "Macro not found..."
I've checked the security (low) and tackled both variants in "trusted sources", but nothing changed. wordfast.dot is placed in the Startup folder, along with Lingvo 12.

What else can I do to start using the program?

Thank you in advance.
Natalia.

On my French version of Word 2000, it's "Outils" > "Modèles et Compléments" It's the 3rd to last option under "Tools". In English it must be someting like "models and add-ins". No idea in Russian

Thank you! It turned to be so simple! I downloaded something by mistake a couple of days ago, and that wordfast.dot was dated 2002, so I followed the link again today, and it all went fine this time.
Thank you once again!
