Editing the registry key to remove 5 languages from Studio Freelance version

Close all SDL products.

In your 'Type here to search' window at bottom right of your screen, type 'regedit'.

Open the Registry Editor.

Either search manually:

The actual address is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\LDSRClient5

Or click on 'Edit > Find' or use Ctrl+F

In the box that appears, type 'LDSRClient5' for Studio 2017 (it would be LDSRClient15 for Studio 2019 or 1,2,3 or 4 for earlier versions) then hit 'Find'

The search will take a while as the registry is very long and very complex:

When the registry key appears, right-click on it and select 'rename'.

Add 'old' to the end of the LDSRClient5 name.

Close the registry.

Open Studio and you should find that it prompts you to add your 5 languages again. Note that you don't need to add more than one variant of any language as all other variants of that language will work once it has been added.

Only do this if you feel confident enough to change your PC registry. If not, contact installation support.
