  • License information

    License types
    The licenses are rented for one year including updates and support. There are 30 network licenses available for free use by the users. Network licenses allow the online use of Maple. A computer on which such a license is to be used must therefore belong to the University Münster area (possible for home workstations via VPN) and be permanently connected to the Internet while working with the program. The licenses are monitored by a license manager.

    License period
    University Münster's current Maple contract runs from 15.11.2022 to 14.11.2023, and licenses are valid for one year at a time (15.11 - 14.11.). After reviewing the need, the maintenance contract with Maplesoft will be renewed for one year at a time.

    Software version and costs
    Maple is currently available in version 2022. Funding for licenses for Maplesoft products is provided by central funds. The use of the network licenses is therefore free of charge for the users.

Maple is then started by the command maple or xmaple. Possibly there are commands for older versions, which are marked by appropriate version numbers.
