New passwords for 2008-2009 are available on the data-software server, including a new unlimited, network-independent license for students to install on their own computers. Detailed instructions on updating your system can be found for Mac and PC on the data-software server.
For faculty and staff, when you launch Mathematica, you may be prompted to enter a new password. To get the password for your platform, browse to the data-software server and look in the faculty_staff folder for Mathematica. The Mathematica 6 readme file contains the new password you need for Mathematica 6. The Mathematica 5.2 readme file contains the password you need for Mathematica 5.2.
For students, new this year, the College has an unlimited license for students to install Mathematica on personally owned machines. We are no longer using a network license manager, so from now on, you can install as a “single machine” installation which can be used off the network. To upgrade or install, go to the data-software server and look in the public folder for Mathematica. Read the README file for detailed instructions on how to upgrade your existing copy, or install the latest version of Mathematica with the new license on your Mac or PC.
