## Question:Compiler setup in Maple

Maple 2017

Hello

Equal_products_16.mw

I think this code was written (Joe Riel/C.Love) on Maple 16 platform back in 2013, but I want it to work in my currrent version.

I think I had to set up a compiler, which was a bit of an ordeal.

compiler setup?

I have installed MS Visual Studio.

Now in Maple I try:

>Compiler:-Setup()

i put vcvars64.bat and vcvarsx86_amd64.bat (from Microsoft Visual Studio folder) in my C:\Program Files\Maple 2017\bin.X86_64_WINDOWS and locate them

I get error

Error, (in Compiler:-Setup) unable to write to initialization file, C:\Program Files\Maple 2017\bin.X86_64_WINDOWS/launch.ini, possibly due to insufficient permissions
