I use Windows 7 64-bit OS.
However, using the front end, which is really the Notebook, I can get the functions to operate properly.
Thanks for the clues for discovering what the front end really is within Mathematica.
Why can't Wolfram simply call things by how they are named. It is OK to be software geeky, but even the books I have read don't make it clear.
The kernel has its own icon and the functions execute within that interface. How would anyone know that the "instructions" for opening the Notebook were in fact enablish a front end that was required to excute certain graphical functions?
Anyway, I am on track and thanks for the help.
