Hello, Your filename should be a String. (This is true in general in Mathematica, not just for the Install function: any function that takes a filename will expect that filename as a String.) Also, when you use the backslash in a filename, you need to escape the backslash, so that Mathematica doesn't think that your filename has the special characters '\m' and '\a' in it. So, your call to Install should look like this: myprog = Install["c:\\maths\\addtwo.exe"] Kevin Leuthold Wolfram Research In article <firstname.lastname@example.org>, email@example.com says... > Hello > I used Mathematica3.0 and used Mathlink to install external command > that is an example for MLDK > > myprog = Install[c:\maths\addtwo.exe] > > it happen an error message > > Syntax :: tsntxi : "\maths\addtwo.exe" is incomplete; > more input is needed. > > How do I insert input in this command? > > Thanks > R.Inorn > >
