You need to unzip the archive into: c:/Wolfram Research/Mathematica/5.1/AddOns/Applications/StableDistribution The package author probably should have created the zip so that all the files were in a folder StableDistribution, but he did not, so you must compensate! I did it with Mathematica 5.2, actually, under Windows XP, and it seems to be working OK. john2 wrote: > I'm pretty much a novice in Mathematica but have ventured into it > because I want to use a Stable Statistics Package from > http://www.npgcable.com/~rrimmer/StableCalculation/HTMLLinks/index_4.html > in 5.1. > > I unzipped and installed the AddOn SMath in c:/Wolfram > Research/Mathematica/5.1/AddOns/Applications/ as instructed.
