Unable to add new or change TM in SDL Trados Connection Definition in Passolo 2011

I would like to set a TM to perform pre-translation in a Passolo 2011 project.

Followings are my operations:

1. Open Passolo project

2. Click Tools--> Click Add-ins

3. Under the Translation tab, set the state of SDL Trados 2007 as Loaded

4. Click Setup and Add New Connection

5. Locate to the TM under File Path for database

Then the following window will pop out:

I've tried changing TM, changing the folder path where I put the TM, all failed.

Even though I perform the operations immediately after rebooting my computer, the window will still pop out.

  • Both products, SDL Passolo 2011 as well as SDL Trados 2007 are not supported anymore. So it might become quite difficult to get any help. Did you installed the latest service release of SDL Passolo 2011? Which version? Which version of SDL Trados 2007 is installed? Please note that SDL Passolo is not accessing the TMW file directly, it needs a licensed version of SDL Trados 2007 on your system and uses the Trados API to access the TMW file.

    As most of the other Community users I don’t have installed SDL Trados 2007 on my system so cannot offer any further help.
