See this page on the Wolfram site: http://www.wolfram.com/solutions/interactivedeployment/compare.html As you can see, notebooks can't be evaluated in the free player. You can run Wolfram Demonstrations, but not input data. If you have Manipulates and similar things that you need, you can have Wolfram convert the notebook for you to a .nbp format. You can view the player as filling two needs: 1. Run programs from the Wolfram Demonstrations Project 2. Display 'static' notebooks -- no evaluation or data entry. The Player Pro has additional functionality, as you can see from the web page. george On Jan 16, 2010, at 6:11 AM, John wrote: > Mathematica 6, Windows XP > > I have written a notebook that the students will access on player.
