"errore di runtime 4608 valori fuori misura", this message started to appear some time ago every time I tried to open one of my old TMs. I have no idea what caused it. I still work with an old word version, office 2000 and a newer Windows XP. I also did a re-install of my old office, but this didn't help, and I recently renewed my WF license, but the same message continues to appear. Sorry, I'm not very good with software, so please do not offer highly technical answers I would not be able to understand! Where should I look for a solution, if any? I would be enormously grateful to you if someone could help me at least telling me where the problem has its cause. And.... happy new year to all.

try deleting wordfast.ini and Jan 3, 2011

You may want to delete wordfast.ini and, because they may be corrupted, which results in the "value out of range" runtime error.

Here is where they should be located on your WinXP / Office 2000 setup:

c:\documents and settings\[username]\application data\microsoft\word\startup
c:\documents and settings\[username]\application data\microsoft\templates

"application data" is a hidden folder, so you will need to make hidden files and folders visible in Windows if you don't see it.

You will have to close Word before you can delete

Word will create a fresh the next time you start it. Likewise, Wordfast will create a fresh wordfast.ini.

I tried, but did not work Oct 14, 2011

I tried your solution, Dominique, but it did not work. Any more suggestions? Note: I did not reinstall Word 2003 and I confess that I am a bit wary. Possibly that could solve it?
