Hello, Christoph. I'm guessing that you're running on a Windows 64-bit machine. We discovered a problem after releasing Mathematica Player in which the MathLink libraries aren't fully upgraded to version 6 MathLink, leaving them in an inconsistent state. We never discovered this because 5.2 and Player works fine if you have 6.0 installed, and we overlooked the scenario of 5.2+Player on a machine where version 6 has never been installed. Our Tech Support department will be posting an FAQ very soon (sorry, I don't know the URL yet) with an .msi installer file that completely upgrades MathLink,and we'll replacing the online version of Mathematica Player with a fixed version in the next few days. In the meantime, the very simplest solution (a bit time consuming, but less confusing and error-prone than any other solution I could give you) is to... * Completely uninstall Mathematica Player and 5.2. * Open a command prompt and change into C:\Windows\SysWOW64. * Run... dir ml* * If you see any of the following files, delete them... ml32i1.dll ml32i2.dll ml32i3.dll mlmap32.mlp mlshm32.mlp mltcp32.mlp mltcpip32.mlp * Now reinstall 5.2. You can install Player again once the tech support FAQ is available (which another Wolfram person should post...I'm going to be on a planefor the next several hours, which is why I don't have all of the information handy). I apologize for the experience. You can feel free to contact tech support if you have any continuing problems. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
