When starting up Maple, the following error appears: "Java Virtual Machine Launcher,  could not create the java virtual machine".  This is a problem of JVM trying to use too much memory.

To decrease the amount of memory used by Java on Windows, edit the file launch.ini found in Maple's bin.win folder.  Find the following lines:

# set maximum Java heap size
# maxheap=700m

Delete the # character AND the space character that precede the word "maxheap". So the final edit will look like:

# set maximum Java heap size

Save the file, and start Maple normally.
