3- Having intalled a Trados 2015 on same machine that runs Passolo.
4- Having upgraded this Trados 2015 to SR2.
5- All working well before upgrade to SR2.

Incident:
Error when TM is accessed, precisely when Plugin is loaded.
You click "Find Fuzzy translations" to search TM and a error is displayed in Messages window.
Or you try to add TM to Translation Helper and you get a error.

Solution:

1- Need Adminstrator atribute to proceed.
2- Open Passolo's install folder e.g. C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SDL\\SDL Passolo\\SDL Passolo Translator 2015\\
note: for 32 bit machines \\Program Files\\ instead of \\Program Files (x86)\\

3- Then open System\DnTradosStudio.

4- Use a editor (memopad, notepad++, etc) to open settings.xml

5- Edit as below:
Example: <InstallLocation>C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SDL\\SDL Trados Studio\\Studio4\\</InstallLocation>

You have to put install path of Trados 2015 SR2 between <InstallLocation> and </InstallLocation>.
Do not use "quotation marks". Note that different PCs may have different install path.

6- Save setting.xml

7- Close Passolo if it is open and restart it to verify.

It fixed my trouble but I do not know why...hope someone can explain...

Explanation Apr 13, 2016

Hello,

SDL Passolo is using SDL Trados Studio components to interface with TMs. The installation path of Studio is searched in the Windows registry using a GUID. Unfortunately this GUID is changing with newer SRs in Studio. So older Passolo licenses will not find newer Studio SRs which can be solved with the described work-around.
