Hi, a) we can't read your mind or the mind of your computer and you should at least tell us *what* are the error messages from the kernel b) look into the Statistics`DiscreteDistributions` package, if you load the package, it should modify Random[] so that Random[BinomialDistribution[n,p]] is working.
