I am getting an error message (Object reference not set to an instance of an object) when trying to generate a target translation in Studio 2014.
I have already tried some of the solutions mentioned in the forum but none worked...
Here is what I have tried already…..
If Studio starts, but shows the error message Object reference not set to an instance of an object when you switch between different dialogs and views:
If the error message still appears after following the steps above, follow the instructions under Solution 2 below.
NOTE: If you do not find this folder, make sure that these files are not hidden. See KB article #3330: Show hidden files and folders on Windows operating systems.
Clothilde This may be caused by the document itself and not necessarily by the software. Did you run a Verify (F8) on this document to make sure that the translation does not contain any tag errors? What happens when you try to do a preview, do you get the same error? Try to open the source file and do a preview without translating any of the segments (make sure that the right-hand column is empty or run the batch task "Pseudo-Translate). If this preview also fails, then this means that the document is incompatible with Studio and needs to be modified (source). If this preview works fine, it means that the error has been introduced with your translation and you need to verify that you don't have any tag errors. Should the document be incompatible with Studio (case 1), report again and we'll arrange to have a look at your document. Walter
Walter, I seem to be encountering the same or a very similar behavior in Studio 2015. There is a slight difference, though. I encounter the error once I have indicated a single file for translation, as soon as I click on the batch tasks icon. I have already followed all of the above steps and haven't started to translate the file, yet. A preview works fine, though. But not being able to pre-translate the file or perform any of the other batch tasks is a problem. A penny for your thoughts, Roland
Did you try the same solutions Clothilde mentioned? If so then I think the most appropriate solution is to contact support as this would be considered an installation problem. Same goes for clothilde courtois This can be achieved really quickly using this link:
Just fill in the form and submit it. If you can, use the Chrome browser to log the case, you'll get more success in completing the form, and make sure your email address is entered correctly or nobody will be able to get back in touch with you.
Hi Rutger H. Cornets de Groot
is there a 'Change' option or an 'Uninstall/Change' option? If so, select that.
All the best
What happens if you right-click on any other software? And if you highlight it, what appears on the top toolbar?
I've highlighted Microsoft Office 356 and 'Change' appears on the top toolbar, or opens in a dropdown menu on right-click...
I'm wondering if the same happens to other programs in your Control Panel list?
Other programs do not have the option grayed out, although there are some that do as well. This is how it shows in my view:
I took a look online and found the following:
Settings > Apps > Apps & Features
In recent versions of Windows 10, this page has been substantially beefed up and now includes listings for not just Store apps but also desktop apps installed through the Store or via an installer.
The fastest way to this Settings page is to right-click Start (or press Windows key + X) and then click Apps & Features from the top of the Quick Links menu.
Click any app to expand its listing and expose the Uninstall button. (That option isn't available for some apps that are included with Windows.) Click Advanced Options to open a separate pane that lets you repair or reset a Store app. If you ever find an app that's misbehaving, always try one or both of these options before taking the drastic step of uninstalling and reinstalling it.
windows-10-tip-Apps & Features
So you should be able to use the above method.
I've just noticed I have the same way of accessing apps as I described to you and in the image you shared in your last post.
So... do you also have this link on that same page?
If you do, you should be able to access the 'Legacy' Programs and Features page that I shared in my first post.
Hope this works!
Hi again Rutger... can you see the Programs and Features button on the 'Settings > Apps > Apps & Features' page?
If not, try typing 'Control Panel' into the search line at the bottom of your screen next to the Windows button:
This should bring it up as a link in the menu that pops up
