## Maple 11 and Windows Vista

Here it is. If you are running windows vista on your machine and installed maple 11, you will shortly notice that you cannot save documents which is a little annoying. After a lot of reading and understanding how maple works as a sofware, I figured out that maple installs its own version of Java Runtime Envenrinement commonly known as JRE. The hick is it is not compatible with windows vista. Here is the solution I propose for you: 1. Go on Java sun`s website and download the latest JRE version. You will need to install it... https://sdlc5e.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=A61F1EC27C11159DC1B22D3FBC2E7AB0 this is the website of the latest version I know of. 2. Once installed go in your Maple jre directory commonly chosen to be C:\Program Files\Maple11\jre, make a new folder and call it backup. 3. Copy all the content of the C:\Program Files\Maple11\jre except the folder backup in C:\Program Files\Maple11\jre\backup just to ensure that if something bad happens you can go back to what it was before... 4. Now copy all that`s in C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.X_XX where the X`s represent numbers related to the JRE version you`ve freshly installed. Paste it in C:\Program Files\Maple11\jre. That should be it. Now you have a fully operational Maple 11 running on Windows vista! Gabriel
