I've just recieved my ''Mathlink for Excel'' package, and on page
7 of the doccumentation, under the second paragraph of [Step 1-Install
files] , it states: > > > ''On Windows you must also move files necessary
to use Mathlink to your WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory. These files are
MLINK16.DLL, MLINK32.DLL, MLLCL16.MLL,MLLCL32.MLL,MLTCP16.MLL, AND
MLTCP32.MLL. They can be found in the Mathematica directory...'' >

I also cannot find them on the cd-rom. Have I overlooked their location,
or are they not provided with the 3.0 student version of Mathematica

In fact, I can't locate this file or mlink16.dll,mllcl.dll,mltcp16
anywhere on any of your ftp sites or your web site or mathsource or
anywhere at all!!! > Basically you have sent me on awild goose chase.Again,
ftp://mathsource.wolfram.com/pub/outgoing/support is an empty directory.If
these files do exist, would you please post an update to their current
location and remove references to locations that no longer exist.

is not an empty directory, rather its contents are not visible, as
the message that is displayed when you access this directory via a
web browswer or ftp indicates. The emptiness or non-emptiness of this
directory is beside the point, however. As was mentioned in the previous
note, the files your are looking for are in ftp://mathsource.wolfram.com/pub/outgoing/support/mldk
which is both visible and non-empty. Forum Moderator.
