Hello I am using Visual Studio 2005 beta and Mathematica 5.0. I was trying to make an application (in c#) which would allow me to use Mathematica functions like Plot[], ListPlot[] etc and show the resulting plot in a picturebox in the form. I read the .NETLink API and tried to run the sample code: private void computeButton_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { if (mathKernel.IsComputing) { mathKernel.Abort();} else { computation.resultBox.Text = ""; messagesBox.Text = ""; printBox.Text = ""; graphicsBox.Image = null; computeButton.Text = "Abort"; mathKernel.Compute(inputBox.Text); computeButton.Text = "Compute"; // Populate the various boxes with results. resultBox.Text = (string) mathKernel.Result; foreach (string msg in mathKernel.Messages) messagesBox.Text += (msg + "\r\n"); foreach (string p in mathKernel.PrintOutput) printBox.Text += p; if (mathKernel.Graphics.Length > 0) graphicsBox.Image = mathKernel.Graphics[0]; } } But when I run this application and press the compute button, a window opens up which says "Choose a MathLink program to launch" and asks me to select an exe file. I have no idea what is happening. Could someone please guide me on what to do. Thanks in advance. Siddharth Jain
