Success! Dictionaries and glossaries happily co-mingling in UniLex… November 9, 2012

I was able to install Der Große Eichborn, my Collins Unabridged German Dictionary, and a pharmaceutical/medical glossary with 1006 entries that I have had for a while. All three of them are happily co-mingling. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to upgrade/purchase a couple of dictionaries at the UniLex website because my versions of Ernst, Kucera and Brinkmann/Blaha were all produced before 2000 and are not compatible with Windows 7.

Dear Jill, I have a technical question – as you I, too, love my Langenscheidt interface but still on Windows XP. Now I have to bury my old computer and wonder if this old Langenscheid interface runs on Windows 7 as well – have you ever tried this or do you even use it on Windows 7? Thanks…and regards, Claudia

I was able to install it on Windows 7 and get it to run. It just took some experimenting and tweaking. Don’t ask me how, but I got it to run. Maybe Langenscheidt has a version on their website that runs on Windows 7.

Ask the authors of the software. Once you bought the legal version, they should help you to install, or even provide a version compatible with new systems, unless the authors alredy gone bankrupt.
