We have just released a small update to MapleSim.  MapleSim 2016.2a is an update to MapleSim 2016.2 that includes improvements in several areas, including corrections to problems related to custom components and importing Modelica libraries. As usual, we recommend that every MapleSim customer install all available updates.  The update is availble through Help>Check for Updates and as a download from our website.  See MapleSim 2016.2a for details.



I have this problem that my computer crashed during Maple 2016.1 to 2016.2 update.

Now it won't start at all.

I have tried reinstalling Maple several times, tried not updating to 2016.1 and running the program as vesion 2016.0.

I get this error in my eventlog, when I try to run the program.

Name of program errors: javaw.exe, version: 8.0.1020.14, timestamp: 0x576af3f4

So as my titel suggests I need help to remove all files associated with Maple so I can install the program anew. It has worked fine for over a year so far. Only stopped working after that crash.

I have even tried installing the older version, Maple 2015 and it doesn't work either, so I am guessing the files which are corrupted aren't removed during a normal uninstall process, and they are shared among the versions of the program.

Thanks in advance :)

We have just released an update to Maple.  It includes updates to the Maple Workbook, the video component, the Physics package, and many other small improvements throughout the product. It is available through Tools>Check for Updates in Maple, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2016.2 download page.


I updated the OSX from El Capitan 10.11 to Sierra 10.12.

After then, whenever I try to input Japanese characters, Internal Error notification appears, and it crashes.
As it is not realistic to go back to the old OS, as the time when I did back up was a little before, I wouldn't do so.
Then, I might end up torelating not using Japanese until the next version of maple appears next year.
Are the situations like this ?

I know there might not be any response as this is about inputting Japanese characters.

Best wishes.



It has been years since I last run one of my packages (not mine actually) and consequently maple.  The package was written in Maple V and run on Maple V5.  I have used updtscr to convert the old code and not many messages came out.   The updated code does not run unfortunately.  One of the problems is the following command:

linalg[dotprod](f,map((a,b) -> diff(b,a),vars,h));

Although linalg is deprecated, that does not seem to be the problem.   Suppose h, f (vector) and vars are:

The output is:

How to avoid the conjugate? Is there a simpler way to do that?

Many thanks for your patience and help.

Off to the right of mapleprimes we have Recent Questions/Maplesoft Blog Posts/Recent Posts and Active Conversations.

I propose to have the category Workarounds added. 


There are two instances I can think of that would be beneficial for Maple users that would belong here.  The most recent one and one regarding issues adding the dissipative term to the heat equations

Users of older versions of Maple or even current Maple versions not yet updated would find this quite useful. 


The Maple 2015.2 update is now available for Windows and Linux users. It provides official support for Windows 10, connectivity to the latest MATLAB release, support for MapleSim 2015.2, updates to Physics, and a variety of small improvements throughout the product.  It is available through the Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2015.2 download page.

The Mac update will be released as soon as we have finished fixing the problems on Mac OS X 10.11. We’re working on it.



I had Maple 2015.1 running. I did Tools->check for update. It said that there is an update available! then I did ok, go and update. Maple downloaded about 60 MB of stuff, asked me to close Maple to finish the update. I close Maple, and it finished the update with no problem.

When I open Maple, I still see it saying 2015.1, so what was the update for?  

It will be nice if Maple tells the users what the update is going to be for. Like saying something to the effect that version XX.XX is available or something. It just said update available.

How can one find what was updated, and why did the version number not get changed? Is there a log file or some command one can use that shows the updates made to current version one is using?

Help->About still says 2015.1, is it possible Maple update just forgot to change the version number? What is the current and latest version number of Maple?  

When I do check for update now, it says no update is available. So I must be running the latest version. But this what what I had before I updated?

    Maple 2015.1, X86 64 WINDOWS, Jun 3 2015, Build ID 1049007

I am on windows 7, 64 bits.



I would like to overwrite a plot that's updated within a loop over time. 

I used animate already, but the problem is that it's  only updated at specific points in time (not regularly distributed) and with animate I can only use frames that are equally divided over the wholre range. To update each time step costs unneeded memory and time. 

I hope that there exists a better solution.

thanks for your help.
