1. install Windows unattended
2. install scheduletask for software installation (runs with systemaccount on windows starts and available network)
3. task runs a cmdfile(1) that map a networkshare and runs another cmdfile(2) on the networkshare
4. cmdfile(2) runs softwareinstallation one by one, every install is a seperate cmdfile
5. cmfile(maple.cmd) starts maple installation with the following cmdline
START "Maple 2016" /WAIT "N:\Math\Maple\Maple2016Windowsx86Installer.exe" --mode unattended --desktopshortcut 0 --shortcutname "Maple 2016" --configureMatlab 0 --matlabpath "" --licenseType network --serverName "" --portnumber 27000

Note: licenseserver and port are configured correctly, tested with manual installation of Maple

- installer starts and install some files (found unter C:\ProgramFiles\Maple 2016)
- installer persists in memory 
- no startmenuentry for maple found
- no installler logfile in maple directory found
- install not finished

- try it with --optionfile ... -> hangs
- try copying all files to local harddisk and run it from there -> hangs
- try it running with a local administrator (using psexec) -> hangs

- if im logged in and run the installer cmdline manually with adminconsole or with systemaccount (psexec -i -s -d cmd) the installation runs perfect, but this is not what i need to install hundreds of machines

While debugging something unrelated to Maple, I noticed in Windows task manager that the process

C:\Program Files\Maple 2016\jre\bin

had a Memory(Private Working Set) of 2,251,088K - roughly 10x the memory footprint of any other running process.

Is this normal?

Not a real issue for me (machine has 16G ram) - but it just *looks* wrong

In case it matters I'm running Maple 2016.1 on Win7, 64bit

Can Maple 17.0 work on Windows 10 Home Edition? or it can be only Windows 10 Pro Edition

 Hi everybody,

Until recently I was using Maple 2015.0 on this PC :

Windows XP
2 dual core proc Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1225 V2 ; 3.19 GHz
64 bytes,
16 Go RAM

For two days now I am using Maple 2015.0 on this one

Windows 7
4 dual core proc Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5-2637 V3 ; 3.50 GHz
64 bytes,
64 Go RAM

Comparisons of the running times for exactly the same code, consisting in 10000 independent Monte Carlo  simulations distributed over all the nodes (resp 4 and 8) give :

Windows XP :  504 sec  (with a variation of the order of  +/- 3s for different replicates)

Windows 7   :  343 sec  (with a variation of the order of  +/- 3s for different replicates)

The expected running time should be 504 * (3.2/3.5) * (4/8) = 230 s
(or 504 * (4/8) = 252 s if you neglect the acceleration due to the clock rate)
The realized running time (343 s) is thus at least  40% larger than the expected one.

Does anybody has already observed this kind of performance loss during XP -> 7 migration ?
Are there some comparisons of cpu times between Windows XP and 7 ?

Thank you all for sharing your own experience.

postscript : a NOTIONALexample of how the computations are distributed is given below

NbOfRuns := 10000:

# Data is a Matix(NbOfRuns, NbOfCols, …) constructed elsewhere

NbOfNodes := Grid:-NumNodes():
NbOfRunsPerNode := NbOfRuns / NbOfNodes:
for k from 0 to NbOfNodes do
   FirstData := 1 + k * NbOfRunsPerNode:
   LastData := (k+1) * NbOfRunsPerNode:
   Grid:-Run(k+1, MyCode, [Data[FirstData..LastData, ..], …])
end do:

How long will MAPLE 16 and future versions of MAPLE will support running on Windows 7? 


(I hope to defer transferring to Windows 10 until MS stop supporting for Windows 7.)

I noticed that Maple 2016 did not add entry in the start menu->All programs, after installing it on window 7, as all the other Maple releases did.  I looked everywhere and do not see it. This is very strange. Only time I had problem like this, where I install Maple but it does not show up in the start menu.

I did not have problem installing 2016, and I can use it fine.  But each time I need to start it now, I have to do start menu->Search and type Maple 2016, to find Maple 2016.

Is there a way to make it show in the start menu? Should I uninstall it and install again? Any one else had this problem on windows?

I'm using Turkish windows on my pc. When I try to calculate some basic problem I encounter some problem on maple.

I searched on forum and I found one solution about this problem.

Solution is that "reach launch.ini file and put 'language=en' in it".

I tried this one but I couldnt manage to solve problem.

So in this point I have some question,

1.Is it matter where is I put this comment on the launch.ini file?

2.Is there any options doşng this?


Thanks in advance...


I have recently install Maple17 on my computer (Windows10) and I need to use some Greece alphabet such as ß but I look everywhere in maple's icon and I just could find capital Greece alphabet.

does anybody know how can I find those?

So I installed copied DirectSearch.hdp and DirectSearch.mla into my Maple2015\lib directory and the program works (all the functions are there) but I cant get help menu by querying ?DirectSearch.

I'm running win7 64bit btw

so under


i put this into maple:


but i get error....

"Converting C:\\Program Files\\Maple 2015\\lib\\DirectSearch.hdb to C:\\Program Files\\Maple 2015\\lib\\"
Warning, .hdb help databases are deprecated, 'C:\Program Files\Maple 2015\lib\DirectSearch.hdb' will not be used, see ?HelpTools,Migrate help page for more information
Error, (in HelpTools:-HelpCallUI) cannot create help database: 'unable to open database file'

any clue?

ps I asked the same question for M18 but I managed to get the help to work in that instance.

(i also copied DirectSearch.hdp and DirectSearch.mla to Maple2015\bin.X86_64_WINDOWS directory but no joy, there is no .help file created in either bin or lib directories)

Does Maple TA work in Windows 10?

My first attempt in Edge and Chrome was not promising.

Which Maple versions will run on Windows 10? Windows 10 is offered free to users of Windows 7 and 8.1. Several (including old) Maple versions run on Windows 7.

I am running Maple in a windows virtual machine, on a mac computer.

I have a number of worksheets on its disk

Windows advised me to run its error checking utility (chkdsk)

when I try and open them it gives me a number of options:

maple text

plain text 

and maple input


None of these are the same as the original files. What has happened? and how can i fix it?

I have 16 running on 32 bit xp computer, but I cannot install on 64 bit m/c with windows 8.1.

Have tried -r ,-f, -i options as in install.html, but install log says nothing installed.

How do I install ?

To run Maple script, on windows, I type

cmaple.exe   my_file.mpl

and this works well. So if my_file.mpl has the line int(sin(x),x);  the result of the above is:

> int(sin(x),x);
> quit
memory used=0.9MB, alloc=8.3MB, time=0.05


sometimes, it will be nice to use cmaple to quickly do one time calculation on the fly such as the above, without having to open Maple GUI or write/edit a file. For example, I'd like to be able to do something like

cmaple.exe   "int(sin(x),x);"

but ofcourse the above does not work as is, since it expects its input to be a file. I tried

cmaple.exe   << "int(sin(x),x);"

but that did not work (for obvious reasons, since the input string is not a file name).

I tried different re-directions, as shown in this page for windows, but maple expects the input to be a file.

Is there a way to use cmaple with command directly written as string as above? I am using Maple 2015.


Compared to Maple on Windows, how do ppl like Maple on Macs ?

Any comments ??


Thanks, cheers !
