Hello,
One of my colleagues has recently installed on her new PC (Windows 8) the latest version of WFP.
She's got a license, the Help > License Management shows the application is working in full mode.

But...

The main WFP icons are greyed out, the shortcuts like ALT+ins to copy source don't work. Roughly speaking, her WFP doesn't work (she can open a file, and that's it).

What's weird is that she installed the WFP client yesterday, activated it via a new license file, and all worked fine.

This morning, she got into that situation where she is stuck with her WFP's main icons being greyed out/inactive.

Sorry if duplicating any topic.
Thanks in advance
Kind regards
JCB
(we tried closing/reopening WFP, restarting her computer, etc.)

I would suggest contacting WF support they are quite quick with their replies, also you could try searching the Yahoo Wordfast group

Create a new project May 20, 2015

Hi JC,
Sometimes, a project can get corrupted (don't know why or how, sorry!). When this happens to me, I create a new project and everything works as normal.

Hope this helps,
John

Hello JC,
I agree with John, just create a new project and everything should be okay!
Bonne chance !

SOLVED - Thank you! May 21, 2015

Hello to you and thanks for your replies,
You're correct, we haven't attempted to recreate another project. Instead, the translator reinstalled WF and the pb went away. Fingers crossed
Have a nice day and thanks
JCB
