Converting notebooks to use Mathematica Player

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 http://www.wolfram.com/solutions/interactivedeployment/publish/), (3) Posting this converted notebook online for others to access (a ZIPped version is at http://www.luttrell.org.uk/notebooks/2D%20Ising%20Model.zip). 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 http://www.luttrell.org.uk/notebooks/2D%20Ising%20Model.zip? It is important that this sort of thing should work OK! -- Steve Luttrell West Malvern, UK
