If you need a software to solve math problems, then Maple is one of the best solutions. Maple is a software designed to help users solve every math problem. This application can be used to analyze, explore, visualize, and solve math problems.
Based on information from Wikipedia, this Maple application was first developed by the Symbolic Computation Group at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The beginning of this development was in 1980 for the purposes of mathematics, statistics and algebraic computation.
How to Install and Activate Maple 18 on Windows 10,8,7
Maple is very widely used to help implement mathematics learning using software. This use will very often be found in study programs that study mathematics, especially computational mathematics and algebra.
For example, in mathematics, statistics, and other fields of science. But unfortunately, there are still many who want to use this software but don’t know how to install it.
How to Install Maple 18 on a Windows Computer
Like other software, the Maple application also makes changes from time to time. Therefore Maple also has many versions that can be used. One version of Maple that is widely used today is Maple 18.
If you want to install Maple 18 software or applications on the PC Desktop or Laptop you are using, you have to make preparations first.

Therefore, please check the Windows bit installed on your laptop or desktop PC then adjust it to the Maple 18 master bit you have. If your Windows is 32 bit, then you must also install Maple 18 32 bit. Likewise, if your Windows is 64 bit, then you have to install Maple 18 64 bit.
However, if you don’t have a Maple 18 master installer at all, then please download it first. You can download the Maple 18 master bit according to your Windows Laptop via the following link.

In the first Setup window, please click Next to proceed to the next step.
Then, in the License Agreement window, please click I accept the agreement . After that, click Next to continue to the next stage.
In the Installation Directory window you can choose the location where Maple 18 will be installed. However, if you still have enough free space on the C partition of your laptop (1.4 GB), it is advisable not to change it.
However, if it turns out that the available free space is lacking, then please select another partition such as partitions D, E, or others. Then, click Next to continue to the next stage.
Then, in the Install Desktop Shortcut window, please select whether you want to create a Maple 18 shortcut on the Desktop or not. If you want the Maple 18 icon to appear on the Desktop, then please select Yes. However, if you do not need the shortcut, then please select No. When finished, please click Next to continue.
In the Choose the Type of Licensing window, leave it on the Single User License option. So, just click Next to continue to the next stage.
Then in the Check for Updates window, please uncheck the checkbox Enable periodic checking for Maple 18 updates after installation and Check for updates now.
Both of these ticks are removed because there is no need to update on Maple 18, either during the install process or afterwards. When finished, please click Next to go to the next stage.
In the Pre-Installation Summary window you will be given information on where Maple 18 will be installed, the storage it needs, and the free space on your partition. You don’t need to make any changes, unless the Free Disk Space is less than Required Disk Space.

When it’s finished, the offline Maple 18 activation process is complete. You can already open Maple 18 either via a shortcut on the Desktop or via the start menu. Now you can use it to help solve math problems and help complete college assignments.
That’s how you can install and activate Maple 18 offline that you can easily do. The method above can be done on all editions of Windows, both on Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1, and Windows 10. What you need to pay attention to is that it must match the Windows bit with the Maple 18 bit that is installed.
