My computer crashed while I was using wordfast and now I can't get wordfast to reinstall. I reinstalled Word and changed normal.dot, restarting the computer, opened Word and opened the wordfast template (as in the instructions, with low security etc.). As I clicked on the "install wordfast" button, the wordfast icon appeared in the toolbar, but then it vanished again. I can still find PlusTools, but there's no sign of wordfast anywhere. Has anyone had this problem before?

Word 2003
XP
wordfast 5.5something

I did that too. Dec 13, 2006

It said that in the manual; still made no difference. It doesn't give me any virus protection messages, either, and whenever I try to install wordfast again, after going through the whole procedure of deleting normal.dot etc., the wordfast icon appears, for a second, in the toolbar, then vanishes as the message comes up that I've successfully installed wordfast.

Hidden toolbar? Dec 13, 2006

Wordfast may be installed but not visible. Go to Tools\Templates and Add-ins and make sure Wordfast is checked. Then go to Tools\Custom\Toolbars and make sure the Wordfast toolbar is selected. The toolbar should be visible now.

Reinstall Word Dec 14, 2006

Hi,
I had the same problem last month and nothing worked. Eventually I ended up reinstalling Word, deleting the wordfast.dot and reinstalling wordfast.
I know it's more time-consuming... but it works.
regards,
Ritu
