I am trying to: Install

I'm getting this error message
WPML String Translation is enabled but not effective. Please finish the installation of WPML first.

I have selected the languages but and saved but the "next" button is washed out and does not work.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. It probably happens due a conflict with some third party plugin or even your current theme, please, try the following:

0 - Make sure your server environment meets our minimum requirements as explained at:

1 - Keep all the plugins disabled and remove your current WPML related plugins files.

2 - Temporary change to a default WordPress theme.

3 - Download your WPML related plugins and proceed with the WPML setup again

4 - Activate all your other plugins and change to your desired theme again.

Please, let me know if it helps, have a nice day.
