Error: Unable to initialize translator LATEXLib

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word for the Macintosh

Problem

Although the installation of Scientific Word 2.5 for the Power Macintosh proceeded with no errors, trying to run the software yields these two messages:

Unable to initialize translator LATEXLib

and then

Failed to find LATEXLib.

No document window ever appears.

Solution

The system does not have enough memory to run Scientific Word. We recommend that you turn on virtual memory and have at least 16 MB of free memory space available for Scientific Word to use. Normally, this will mean allocating at least 24 MB of virtual memory space.
