This error message is relatively common when installing older versions of Maple on newer versions of Windows. To remedy the problem, first ensure that you have an up-to-date, full installer file. Then, execute the installer with administrative privileges in Compatibility Mode:
- Right-click the installation file and select 'Properties'.
- Click the ‘Compatibility’ tab.
- Check the box next to ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select the appropriate operating system from the drop-down menu.
- Click ‘Apply’.
- Run the installation as normal.
Please note that only certain versions of Maple are officially supported, so we cannot guarantee that these steps will resolve the issue.
