According to Paul Filkin: Jan 3

...rename this folder (just add _old to the end or something, it's not important what you rename it to) and restart Studio:

c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\14.0.0.0

So the path would become this:

c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\14.0.0.0_old

Parameter is not valid Sep 23

I have not tried re-naming the file and/folder, but it seems like this is kind of silly and Studio should fix this. I should not have to rename anything for the app to work. I am so frustrated. Nothing has worked so far to fix this issue in SDL 2019 sr2. Wish I had stayed with 2017!!
