I am assuming that you are trying to do this in Maple 10. For Maple 10 you can do something like the following:
If anyone is wondering how to do this in Maple 11, this is made a lot simpler by only needing the following command:
The new Do() command in Maple 11 knows how to treat MathContainers so that the MathML is converted properly.
You could take a look at the procedure created in this worksheet on the application center http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/app_center_view.aspx?AID=989
You can then use the procedure to find the center of the sphere and use the sphere command from the plottools package to create the "ball" at each time sequence.
Try something like the following:
The reason why you get all those characters when opening in an older version of Maple is that the new interface makes use of a lot of new typesetting and formatting that wasn't available in earlier versions. If you would like to create a document in a Maple 10 version and like to see it in an earlier version, the Maple Classic interface would be the ideal option. You will have to watch out that the further you go back, the more changes to the functions would have taken place. Therefore you would have commands in Maple 10 that may not be in Maple 8, or they may react differently (as in the cases when there was a bug in the Maple 8 procedures that were fixed in Maple 9, or 10).
I hope this helps.
This often happens due to non-English characters (like ! marks) in the windows username. An easy way to get around the error is to go into the Environment Variables (Start>Control Panel>System>Advanced>Environment Variable) and change the path for the TMP and TEMP folders to another folder that isn't in the Document and Settings folder (something like C:\TEMP). This should get you past this installer error.
I am not sure if I am missing something obvious, but what difference are you referring to? Are you wanting Maple to output the n's that go with the output? If so try something like the following:
seq(['n' = n, fsolve(x^n-add(x^i, i = 0 .. n-1) = 0, x)], n = 2 .. 12)
Or with the above, since the answers are being grouped by the values of n, you could find the difference between the first answer of each n or the difference between the odd or even n's.
Go to View>Typesetting Rules. In the window that comes up, uncheck the "Primes Derivative" option within the "Differential Options" section. This should solve this.
I am not sure exactly the reason for this but it appears to come as a result of the use of the variable i in every summation (which is being nested). If each summation uses another variable like the worksheet below and you should get the number you are looking for.

If you have entered in the 2-D form of the piecewise (either using the palette or command completion) you can add additional lines by clicking Ctrl+Shift+R. If you are entering it as 1-D input you can just add the additional conditions before the otherwise definition.
The .sty files that you need to use with the .tex file can be found in the ETC folder within Maple. For example on a Windows OS this folder would be
C:\Program Files\Maple 10\ETC\
You should either be able to link the LaTeX compiler to those sty files or copy them into the same folder as your .tex file is.
The error for the libgmp.dll come from the processor not being recognized. You can get around this error by copying the libgmp.dll from the 'C:\Program Files\Maple 10\bin.win\GENERIC' folder into the 'C:\Program Files\Maple 10\bin.win' folder. As for opening up Maple 10 and getting the "Unable to connect to Kernel", the majority of the time this caused by the firewall. One thing you have to make sure that you don't have 2 (or more) firewalls running (like a Windows firewall along with something else) that could continue the problem. I would suggest going to all the firewalls and allowing the following file access past the firewalls:
As for the error that Chris_B brought up, I would suggest contacting Maplesoft Technical Support concerning that.
Another way to get a line like x=6 to be plotted (without using two point and connecting them is to try the following:
plots[implicitplot](x = 6, x = 0 .. 8, y = -5 .. 5);
The implicitplot function in the plots package is good for this.
Here is a combination of two of the example maplets and a procedure that I put together. Does this do roughly what you are looking for?

I tried the original code that you indicated that you got working and it didn't work for me with Maple 10.06. I did notice that you forgot the equal sign on the following line:
if Test 0 then
I also noticed that you had the following section:
Here you had an end if (that ended the if statement) and then continued with an else command that doesn't link up with an if command. Was there some code that was missed in the post or did you get rid of that second section (between the two end if statements)?
There are two problems with what you were trying to do. First, if you wanted the parametric equation for an ellipse at center (0,1) ellipsy should equal 1+ sin(theta). The second problem is that you defined your equations as functions but in the solve command referred to them as equations. If you try something like the following you will find the first solution.
cx := proc (theta) options operator, arrow;
cos(theta) end proc;
cy := proc (theta) options operator, arrow; 1+sin(theta) end proc;
ex := proc (theta) options operator, arrow; 2*cos(theta) end proc;
ey := proc (theta) options operator, arrow; 1+sin(theta) end proc
solve([cx(theta) = ex(theta), cy(theta) = ey(theta)], [theta])
[[theta = 1/2*Pi]]
