Q: How do I install Maple?


Starting Maple requires a license file for the current version of Maple to operate. License files for earlier versions will not work. You must activate the single user version of Maple to obtain your license file. If you are running a single user installer, you can activate during the installation process. If you do not activate during the installation process, follow the steps below.

Maple requires Java to be fully functional. On the Mac, recent Java versions won't work, and you will be prompted to install an obsolete Java version.
  1. Activation requires an internet connection. If your computer does not have an Internet connection, contact Software Distribution.
  2. Start Standard Worksheet Maple.
  3. When prompted, click Activate.
  4. You will be prompted to enter your purchase code (MIT Certificate required).
    1. If you are activating behind a proxy server, make sure to enter this information before clicking Next.
      Result: You will be prompted to enter additional information.
  5. Click Next when the additional information is complete.

Alternate activation instructions:

  • Macintosh: Run you can also activate by running the activation script located in the bin folder of your Maple installation. By default, /Library/Frameworks/Maple.framework/Versions/xxxx/bin
  • Windows: Use the Start menu shortcut: (All) Programs>Maple xxxx>Tools>Activate Maple xxxx
    Note: If you are using Windows 7, right-click Activate Maple and select Run as administrator.

A Maple license file (license.dat) will be saved in the license folder of your Maple installation. If you experience difficulties with activation, refer to the Maplesoft FAQ.
