Problem with Microsoft Update and SDL Trados April 23, 2012

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Tech tips.

Just a word of warning to those of you who use Trados and install the Microsoft Updates on a delay… there is a problem with Security Update for Microsoft 2007 Suites (KB2598041). If you install each update individually you should skip this one.

If you have already installed the update, you should set your computer back to a earlier Restore Point and install each update individually.

In the future consider waiting a day or two to install the downloaded updates. You can change the setting for Windows Update

  1. Click Start, type Windows update in the search box, and then click Windows Update in the Programs list.
  2. In the left pane, click Change settings.
  3. Select Download updates but let me choose whether to install them.
  4. Click OK.

Those of us who work with MemoQ, Fluency or Wordfast don’t need to worry about this 🙂 – although it’s still a good idea to delay installing updates to see what problems might crop up.

Hi Jill! I found a thread on ProZ.com which was really helpful. I deleted the EXD files which are mentioned: http://www.proz.com/topic/222565

Thanks for sharing the link, Nelia. Very informative indeed.

Just thought I’d amend as follows 🙂

Those of us who work with ***SDL Trados Studio,*** MemoQ, Fluency or Wordfast don’t need to worry about this.

Trados is getting very old indeed..!
