Hi
Can anyone help me with how to install add ons in MATHEMATICA 9.0.1?
I have installed Mathematica 9.0.1 and downloading this package (add ons package), but I don't know how I should install them in MATHEMATICA.  Help me.
Thanks

I was speaking about Windows.

Hi Frank,  

Perhaps it depends on which folder we're talkign about.  On OSX I was referring to 
FileNameJoin[{$InstallationDirectory, "AddOns"}]

If one installs a new version of Mathematica and does so on OSX by overwritting the original Mathematica.app with a new one then this directory is replaced with whatever is in the new Mathematica.app.  I don't know the situation with Windows though. 

Best,
David

Thanks all

   My «Add-Ons packages» has ".iso" and ".exe" files format. indeed, i downloaded one file that contain several packages with ".iso" and ".exe" files format.
Commands that you said are for ".m" files or do this applicable for that files i downloaded?

That files is:
Wolfram Mathematica Wavelet Explorer 1.2.2.iso
Wolfram Mathematica Time Series 1.4.0 Win.exe
Wolfram Mathematica Parallel Computer Toolkit 2.1.0.iso
Wolfram Mathematica Finance Essentials 1.2.1 Win.exe
and «
NeuralNetworks» folder.

Best,
Vahid

Vahid, 

My guess is that those .exe and .iso files are meant to be used as installers (.exe) or to mount as a disk image (.iso).  I am not sure where you obtained those files (they correspond to applciations that I believe one purchases from Wolfram Research directly).  If you have purchased them or recieved them from someone who had purchased them, then there will be instructions on how to install them.  Otherwise you should contact Wolfram Research directly for advice.  Of course I'd be cautious about executable files obtained from a third party.

Best,
David

I don't think external packages are overwritten if they are in the AddOns/Applications folder on updating.

You can use the approach using the installation GUI that Sean describes above.  Alternatively you can place your package yourself (and remove it by hand if you shoose to) in one of the following directories.

For use of only the user who is installing it palce it in the directory that opens using this command:
SystemOpen[FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Applications"}]]

For it to be accesible to all users of the system place it in the following directory  that opens using this command:
SystemOpen[FileNameJoin[{$BaseDirectory, "Applications"}]]
 
Be careful not to put it in the AddOns/Applications folder of the Mathematica installation since this will be updated and overwritten if you update your copy of Mathematica.

Try putting it in the AddOns/Applications folder (if you're on Windows).
