I for the latest version, 7.15.2672, on SnapFiles and downloaded it. However, upon unzipping it and running the main app, my system immediately treat the theSage.exe as malware and erased it. I securely wiped the ZIP file, downloaded it again and extracted it, only to see Bandizip say "Access is denied(5)" the main app was erased again. I'm glad I have version 6.10.1816 on my desktop and version 7.8.2644 on my portable drive. Neither give me any problems.

I tried the latest version of this dictionary/thesaurus portable software and still had problems with it. Only this time, I recorded my problem.

Perhaps fellow members commiserating at someone's ineptitude to grasp the obvious ?
Your guess is as good as mine...;-)

I obtained Lingoes dictionaries by looking up an older version, such as "Lingoes Translator 2.8.1 + Dictionaries". I used
http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/ca64ece4/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part1.rar & http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/92e1656f/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part2.rar . I used 7-zip to unzip the files (unzip "part1" and you will unzip the whole file). The dictionaries are found in the folder "dictionaries". A list is found at http://download-pedia.com/?a=f&b=OgRWJSMhCGcRWjkWCgJZUAcoSyolXA!! , although the links did not seem to work. Also, if you try to download the ".ld2" files from the Lingoes website, I did get a download window sometimes from "Download from Dbank" if I left clicked all over the first screen that came up about 100 times. Every now and then you will get a series of downloads from "Download from SkyDrive", but only on certain dictionary downloads.

The latest version of Lingoes is 2.9.2- http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/download.htm
However I would like to ask- is there a way to block the annoying ads? I would rather stop using Lingoes than tolerating the obtrusive ads Lingoes spews out at every search.
