I have just tried to do a trial run of (1) Creating a notebook using 
Mathematica 6, (2) Uploading the notebook for Mathematica Player online 
conversion (see, (3) 
Posting this converted notebook online for others to access (a ZIPped 
version is at

To check that things worked on a previously clean machine (i.e. without 
Mathematica 6 installed) today I downloaded and installed Mathematica Player 
onto an old PC (running Windows XP, but not connected to the internet), and 
tried running the above converted notebook. The notebook opens and the input 
cells display OK, but I can't find any way of executing the notebook, 
despite the fact that it proudly announces "interactivity enabled" at the 
top of the notebook, and the output of the Manipulate cell appears only as a 
grey square. On the other hand, if I try to run the converted notebook in 
Mathematica itself then it runs OK.

If there is anyone else out there who has a "clean" machine (i.e. 
Mathematica Player, but not Mathematica 6) could they see what happens when 
they try to run the converted notebook in It is important 
that this sort of thing should work OK!
