I am a first-time user of CAT tools and have just purchased Wordfast Classic. I have Windows 7 and Office 2007 by the way. I have downloaded the file and saved it in the Start-up folder. When I double-click on the file, another word document opens which tells me to press ctrl + alt + w. When I did this, nothing happened. The Wordfast helpline could not help either. Has anyone had this problem before?

Should be no problem Mar 15, 2016

You should have no problem installing WF Classic with Windows 7 and Office 2007 - I use W7 and Office 2010 now and don't recall having any issues. Have you made sure that your security and/or antivirus settings allow installation of programs and macros, etc? As far as I can recall, you need to enable macros.

PS: However, I just found this on Google, which apparently says you need to disable micros (although I didn’t take time to read it in detail). Check it out:
