I have a 6-year old desktop computer with an Intel Core i5 470 3.2GHz processor, 8GB ram, and SSD. CafeTran often freezes during preliminary memory matching (especially with large source documents).
This problem does not occur on my newer Surface Book with an i5-7300U Processor, also with 8GB ram and SSD.
I am using the same settings on both machines. Is this a problem with hardware on my older desktop (too slow and old for CafeTran), or is there anything else I can try before replacing my computer?
A part of your RAM might be taken by other applications in the second machine. You might check this solution to assign more RAM memory for CafeTran: https://cafetran.freshdesk.com/a/solutions/articles/6000160241
Thanks Igor. Reinstalling CafeTran fixed the problem for me.
