Hi, try AppendTo[$Path,"C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\rosenthal\Eigene Dateien\Symkin\Mathematica"] what you do with SetDirectory[] is irrelevant for the package search.

So, although the files seem to be in the right place, mathematica will not access them. Is there some other path-variable that I need to set, e.g. a variable containing the default-path for packages or something like that? Also, you might want to know that this package did run under earlier versions of mathematica, and, was designed for mathematica 4, I think. > Thanks for any suggestions, > Dietmar >
