can I keep old version running after update to Ver 6?
I may spring for the big bux to get Ver. 6. Can anyone tell me whether I'll be able/allowed to keep my Ver 5.1 on my machine? I've got hundreds of .nb files that now work on 5.1 and I want to be sure I can retain their functionality. It's pretty clear that some of these programs won't run under Ver 6. I would eventually update those .nb files to work with Ver 6 but I don't want to be without their use in the meantime. I remember being very inconvenienced at last update from 4 to 5 when I no longer had Ver 4 available. Thanks. beckman wrote: > Hello -- I'm trying to get my old notebooks to work in Mathematica 6.
