I want to install Maple to an image and distribute it to a number of machines. What are my installation and activation options?
When installing Maple onto an image for distribution to a number of machines, there are a couple of options:
1. The Maple network installation is similar to a stand-alone installation, the only difference being the license file that is installed. The network client version has a license file that points to another computer to administer the licenses. The installation only asks for the hostname (or IP address) of the machine that the license manager is running on. This scenario is ideal for distributing a floating license across a single lab or multiple labs.
2. Install the single-user license version of Maple to the image but leave it unactivated by choosing to Activate Later at the last step of the installation. When users try to use Maple for the first time, they will be required to activate the software using a supplied Maple purchase code. Note that this will require a connection to the Internet.
If you require further assistance with this process please contact Technical Support (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include the Maple version, exact operating system and purchase code/order number. (eg. Maple 2016, Mac OS X 10.11.6, Order #: 123456)
