    I changed the extention of an XLZ file into zip and I unzipped the file. Then I imported xlf file into a CAT tool. I found this solution at proz.com and I found it extremely simple!

    I would like to thank you a lot for the information you posted concerning the tool to remove the .net versions. I tried it and it worked. It was very frustrating when I upgraded to Windows version 8.1 and I could not work with Idiom anymore.

    Hi Pieter, I unzipped the file and ran the code but nothing happened.
    Is it supposed to be like this? Because I don’t know when is it ready for me to install the workbench.

    Except running the file I used the programme compatibility troubleshoot and installed the workbench under the Windows XP mode. and it WORKED! Thank you so much!

    I cannot apply the instruction above on win 8.1. I simply double-click the exe and select option to clean up the Framework 1.1 and then install the Idiom workbench but failed.
