On this week I asked Maplesoft Customer Service for help. Here is our correspondence
(Only the purchase code and e-mail addresses are censored. PS. Also the last name of Kari was deleted by Bryon Thur on 28.08.2015.).
I think this is of interest for many Maple users. I have got some experience contacting
with Kaspersky Antivirus (They helped me by the use of indices of my comp.) and ABBYYLingvo
(They helped to install an ABBYYLingvo vocabulary on my phone.) so I can compare and
make conclusions.

After upgrading my Windows 7 HB 32-bit to Windows 10 I cannot uninstall my Maple 16 PE.
 It cannot be uninstalled by neither Start/Parameters/System/Applications nor
Uninstall in C/ProgramFiles/Maple 16.
The Uninstall option is not seen in Maple 16 as application.
Also the overinstallation of Maple 16 does not work.
Waiting for your feedback.

Dear Markiyan Hirnyk,

Thank you for contacting Maplesoft.

Maple 16 is not officially supported on Windows 10 but I have added an activation to your
existing Maple 16 Personal Edition purchase code: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to see if reactivating
your license fixes the issue.  If reactivating doesn't give you access to Maple 16, please
send me the exact wording of any error messages that you receive so that I can send
 the information to our Technical Support Team so that they can investigate further.

Kind regards,

Customer Service
Hello Kari,
Unfortunately, neither the  reactivation of my Maple 16 PE by XXXXXXXXXX nor its uninstallation
do not succeed for me. See the error communications in the attached screens (both in one file) screens_1_2.docx.
It should be noticed that Maple V Release 4 works on Windows 10 of my comp without any problems.

Hi Markiyan Hirnyk,

Thanks for your response.
I am forwarding your information to our Technical Support Team.
A representative will contact you soon.
Kind regards, Kari

Hello Markiyan,

This error is usually caused by a Windows permissions setting. To fix this, please do the following:

1. Ensure that all Maple programs are completely closed.
2. Click on your Start Menu and go to the 'Programs' > 'Maple 16' > 'Tools' folder.
3. Right click the 'Activate Maple' icon and choose 'Run as administrator'.
4. Activate Maple using your purchase code and this should fix your issue.

Please let me know if you continue to experience any troubles.

Hello Chris,
Following your directions, I have just reactivated Maple 16, but my problem is not solved.
To shed light on the situation, my Maple 16.02 works properly,
but I cannot uninstall it after upgrading to Windows 10 Home 32bit.
See the screens in the attached file screen.docx .

Hello Markiyan,
If you are seeing error messages about Maple still being open,
 I would suggest you try to restart your PC and then attempt the uninstall again to ensure
that you do not have any lingering Maple programs running. Please let me know
if you still see this message after restarting.


Technical Support Analyst
Hello Chris,
This does not help too. My guess is execution failure when Maple 16 was installing.
Because of that reason the Maple 16 installer did not create Maple uninstaller in my Maple 16.
 See the attached screen of the uninstall folder in C:/ Program Files/ screen_3.docx.
Markiyan Hirnyk
If you think that you have a corrupted installation, I recommend that you reinstall Maple
using the new Maple 16.02 installer link provided below.
 This version of the installer was created to get around the Windows 8 installation issues and
 may be of help to you in Windows 10 as well, though again please be aware that
 we do not officially support Windows 10 yet.
Here are the steps to reinstall Maple:
1. Click on the Start Menu > Control Panel > Programs and Features ( or Add/Remove Programs).
 Find ‘Maple 16’ in the list and uninstall it. If this is not possible, move on to the next step and continue.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Click on the Start Menu > Computer > Local Disk C: > Program Files.
If there is a folder here called ‘Maple 16’, please delete it.
4. Download the installer for Maple 16 from the following link:
5. Make sure to download the correct version for your operating system, i.e. Windows version and 32 or 64-bit.
6. Install Maple by right clicking the installation file and choosing ‘Run as administrator’.
I hope that this helps to resolve the issues that you’re having and if it does not,
contact us and we can further investigate for you.

 Hi Chris,
My problem with Maple 16 is solved. I completely uninstalled it by Uninstall Tool 3.4, not using brute force. After that I installed Maple 16 by the distributive suggested by you. That's all right.
Markiyan Hirnyk
Alright, that is good to hear. Please let us know if you run into any further issues with your installation.

Dear sirs/madams,

I tried to use my MAPLE in a MacBook with a quiet large screen...however I see the letter sizes of my Maple16 very small (the same wiht the font size on input and ouput sheets..and everywhere)..

Is there some way to "see larger and bigger"?

Thanks for your attention,




I am on iMac (OS X 10.6.8) and I am trying to upgrade my Maple 16 software using Maple1602MacUpgradeInstaller, but it does not work :-/

When I launch Maple1602MacUpgrade program the Authentification window open, I unlock entering my admistrator password, OK, then the installer display "Please wait while the installer is being configured"... the progression bar is displayed, and at the end an empty window (window content is uniformly grey) is displayed...

In the name God,

Hello all,

I'm a maple16-x64 user.

I am to solve a nonlinear 3-equation-system (Vector RO) for which I have It's exact solution up to 90 digits(Vector valued;) 

In the name of God


Hello all,

Look at these instructions, entered in maple16(x64):



--- Up to now, about 5 Gb's of my 8Gb memory is occupied and no problem




Error, (in Matrix) Maple was unable to allocate enough memory to complete this computation. Please see

Maple16 on Ubuntu 12.04, 64-bit.  Radeon 4550 video.  plot3d images are kind of split down the middle with left half of the image on the right and right-half on the left, lots of flicker when trying to manipulate with the mouse, surface is monochrome and poorly rendered, crashes maple application if you try to manipulate it too much.

This behavior occurs using the default xorg video driver (not proprietary) and default xorg configuration.  I have not...

I am right now attempting to install Maple16, and somewhere in the installation process the following appears to be happening: "installing... THBI_____.ttf". This something then proceeds to be installed for more than half an hour, at which point I stopped the installation process. Is this supposed to take super long or might something be wrong here? 

... is finance.dll missing in Maple16 (64 bit), as it was in Maple15 (64 bit), so you have to install the 32 bit version instead?

Is it possible to move the finance.dll-file from Maple16(32-bit) to Maple16(64-bit)?


I would appreciate a hint why Maple 16 Classic under Win XP 32 bit crashes due to the following sequence of commands

> dir1:="C:\\Maple16\\P16\\test1\\";
> path:=cat("dir ",dir1);
> ssystem(path);

with the lasst ssystem command doing the crashing while the same sequence of commands under Maple 13 Classic does not: Instead, system returns to Maple 13 worksheet the content of the directory "dir1" as expected.

Is there another way to issue that ssystem command?

The basic plot routine in Maple 16 has a serious problem with the domain.  The following is an example.

The domain is correct in Maple 15.  This failure occurs in both Windows 7 and Linux.
