When attempting to start Maple, the message
LoadLibrary failed with error 1114: A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed
may be related to the graphics card:
To solve this please try the following:
Try updating the video card drivers.
Note: If you are using Remote Desktop to remote into a computer running Maple, please ensure that the graphics cards on both computers are upgraded fully from the vendor website.
The video card may have "Switchable Dynamic Graphics" set to less than maximum performance. If applicable, try to change the setting.
For an ATI/AMD graphics card, you can set both options within
Catalyst Center > PowerPlay
to "Maximize Performance".
If your AMD graphics card doesn't have a power play option you can change the setting by:
Open the control center by right clicking on your Desktop and selecting either AMD Control Center or Configure Switchable Graphics.
From there click Browse, add Maple 2021 to the Application List, then choose High Performance.
To test if the problem is related to "Switchable Dynamic Graphics", if the machine has dual monitors with one connected to the on-board card and the other to an external card, you can move an open Maple worksheet displaying a 3D plot from one monitor to the other.
On Windows, the power settings could be in conflict with Java hardware acceleration, and may need adjustment. Ensure that in
Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options
the "Plan" is set to "High performance". Further, open
Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings
and expand the option for your graphics card (e.g. "Intel(R) Graphics Settings"). For any options, make sure they are set to "Maximum Performance".
