Maple 13 License.dat: A Complete Guide for Installation and Troubleshooting


Maple 13 License.dat: A Complete Guide for Installation and Troubleshooting




Maple 13 is a powerful and versatile software for mathematical computation, visualization, and programming. It can help you solve complex problems, create interactive applications, and explore data and concepts. But before you can use Maple 13, you need to activate it with a license file.




maple 13 license.dat



A license file is a text file that contains information about your Maple 13 purchase, such as your purchase code, your license type, and the number of users allowed. The license file is named license.dat and it is saved in the license folder of your Maple 13 installation. The default location of the license folder depends on your operating system:


  • Windows (32-bit Maple and OS, or 64-bit Maple and OS): C:\Program Files\Maple 13\license\license.dat



  • Windows (32-bit Maple and 64-bit OS): C:\Program Files (x86)\Maple 13\license\license.dat



  • Macintosh: /Library/Frameworks/Maple.framework/Versions/13/license/license.dat



  • Linux: /home/$USER/maple13/license/license.dat



The license file is generated during the activation process, which requires an internet connection. You can activate Maple 13 either online or offline, depending on your situation. In this article, we will explain how to activate Maple 13 with a license.dat file and how to troubleshoot some common issues that may arise.


How to Activate Maple 13 with a License.dat File




To activate Maple 13 with a license.dat file, you need to have your purchase code ready. Your purchase code is a 16-digit alphanumeric code that was sent to you in an email or available on the Maple 13 Installation, Activation, and Technical Support card found in the Maple 13 box. You also need to know your license type, which can be either single user or network.


Single User Activation




If you have a single user license, you can activate Maple 13 on one computer only. You do not need to run a license server or connect to one. To activate Maple 13 as a single user, follow these steps:


  • Insert the Maple 13 DVD into your DVD drive or mount the ISO image if you downloaded it.



  • Run the installer and follow the instructions on the screen.



  • When prompted, enter your purchase code and select Single User as your license type.



  • The installer will connect to the Maplesoft activation server and generate a license.dat file for you.



  • The license.dat file will be saved in the license folder of your Maple 13 installation.



  • You can now start using Maple 13 on your computer.



Network Activation




If you have a network license, you can activate Maple 13 on multiple computers that are connected to a network. You need to run a license server on one computer that will serve out the concurrent licenses to the other computers. To activate Maple 13 as a network user, follow these steps:




  • Run the activation utility in the Maple Network Tools and enter your purchase code.



  • The activation utility will connect to the Maplesoft activation server and generate a server license file for you. The server license file is named Maple2022.lic and it is saved in the activate folder of your Maple Network Tools installation.



  • Edit the server license file with a text editor and make sure that the hostname and port number match those of your license server.



  • Start the license manager service on your license server by running lmtools.exe in the bin.win32.x86_64 folder of your Maple Network Tools installation.



  • Install Maple 13 on each client computer that will use Maple 13 over the network.



  • When prompted, enter your purchase code and select Network as your license type.



  • The installer will generate a client license file for you. The client license file is also named license.dat and it is saved in the license folder of your Maple 13 installation.



  • Edit the client license file with a text editor and make sure that the hostname and port number match those of your license server.



  • You can now start using Maple 13 on any client computer that connects to the license server.
