Reference Number: AA-00609 Created: 01-02-2014 19:21 Last Updated: 01-02-2014 19:21 0 Rating/ Voters

TitleError message appears upon opening any translation document


Context: You cannot open translation tabs. Upon opening you are confronted with a general error.

memoQ Version: Any


Description: When the general error message appears, click on “More” in order to know better what it relates to. Please see a sample of the error message in the "Example" section below.

If it is identical, then it means that your preferences-layout.xml  file is corrupt and needs to be deleted so that memoQ can generate a new copy.


Fix: In order to find the preferences-layout.xml, you must navigate to:

C:\Documents and Settings\yourprofilename\Application Data\MemoQ for Windows XP users,


C:\Users\yourprofilename\AppData\Roaming\MemoQ for Vista and Windows 7 users.

Once you have found the files, delete them.


Comment: You may need to enable the visibility of hidden folders to find the AppData folder under Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Example: Below is an example which indicates that the preferences-layout.xml is corrupt.
