How do I Activate Maple?

Question:

How do I activate my copy of Maple?


Solution:

If you need to re-activate Maple, or if you have chosen to activate Maple after installation, you can access the activation tool as follows:


WINDOWS

  1. From the Start menu, go to All Programs > Maple > Tools.
  2. To launch the Maple Activation software,

    • On Windows XP, select "Activate Maple".
    • On Windows Vista / 7 / 10, right-click on "Activate Maple" and select "Run as Administrator".
    • On Windows 8, right-click on the "Activate Maple" tile and choose ‘Run as administrator’ at the bottom of the screen.

      If you do not see the “Activate Maple” tile, right-click on an empty part of the Start screen and click on “All apps” in the lower right corner. Right-click on “Activate Maple” under the “Maple” heading and choose ‘Run as administrator’ at the bottom of the screen.

    • On Windows 8.1, right-click on the "Activate Maple" tile and choose ‘Run as administrator’ at the bottom of the screen.

      If you do not see the “Activate Maple” tile, click on the downward-pointing arrow in the bottom left corner of the Start screen. Right-click on “Activate Maple” under the “Maple” heading and choose ‘Run as administrator’ at the bottom of the screen.

  3. In the window that opens, enter your 16-character purchase code and follow the onscreen instructions.


MAC OS X

  1. Open a Finder window.
  2. Navigate to //Library/Frameworks/Maple.Framework/Versions/[version number]/bin.

    (If you are having trouble finding this folder in OS X, please click here: http://www.maplesoft.com/support/faqs/detail.aspx?sid=148309 )

  3. Double-click the "activation" script.
  4. In the window that opens, enter your 16-character purchase code and follow the on-screen instructions.


LINUX

  2. Run the "activation" script from the bin folder.
  3. In the window that opens, enter your 16-character purchase code and follow the on-screen instructions.


An alternative to this method of activation is to submit an offline activation request on our website:
