I'm having trouble getting Pythonica to start with Mathematica 5.2 on Windows XP. I'm using the supplied notebook Pythonika.nb. I begin by evaluating the cell app = "d:\Language\pythonika\bin\Windows\Pythonika.exe"; Install[app]; where app indeed gives the correct path to Pythonika.exe. I get a pop-up window asking, "Choose a MathLink program to launch". Should I be selecting MathKernel.exe? If I do, then the cell I evaluated just keeps running (thickened cell bracket, and nothing returned), and I cannot even get evaluation of the next cell -- Links[app] to return a result. What am I doing wrong? -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
