I am trying the brand new trial version.

I type in =Forest Gump, then the Enter key.

The input turns into a box with a plus sign in the upper right corner. When I hover over the plus sign, it displays "Show all results".

When I click on the plus sign, some data is displayed (looks like W|A), then Mathematica is hung ("Not Responding" according to Task Manager).

I kill it.

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated.


$\quad \quad$ Version
$\quad \quad$ OS: Windows 8.1

Should I wait for 10.1?

  • $\begingroup$ I can not reproduce your problem on my system -- V10.0.2 running under OS X 10.6.8. You might try ==Forest Gump if you want a fuller answer from W|A. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Mar 29 '15 at 0:42


WolframAlpha["Forest Gump", "FullOutput"]

runs about 1 sec. on my computer. Hint: Make sure you have fast Internet connection. Here an extract of screenshot of result enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ This works. I am not sure if that is what the button shows, but it allows me to continue my testing..Thx $\endgroup$ – antelope Mar 29 '15 at 0:35
