It appears that something similar happens with Mac OS X. That is when I checked the file /Library/Mathematica/mathpass it has several entries. >In the past I've had trouble when that happens, since when the new >version was installed it prepended the new password information to the >existing mathpass file there.

I am not seeing any problem with using either version 5.2 or 6 as a result of the password information being appended. However, I've not used a version of Mathematica that had an explicit expiration date. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
