## Symbolically solve a vector with vector input

I have the following script

So, C is a vector with symbolic equations, and q is the vector with symbols. Now I would like to solve for q. However, that does not seem the work. Is there a way to make this work?

When this works:

You would expect your equation to be solved for q[0 and q[1, but alas:

What does work is:

and this:

To have it a little bit more nice-looking, replace the indexes with literal subscripts:

@Werner_E How does Prime 6 fare with the legacy versus the new symbolic?

Needless to say, but I'll do it anyway... Mathcad 11:

Success!

In Prime 6 we can compare the old and the new symbolic engine. Obviously this is one  more thing which got broken when switching from muPad to the new axiom fork.

As I read here in the forum, PTC claims that the symbolics in Prime 8 is vastly improved and more stable. So far I could not be bothered to download and install P8 but I guess Luc's attempts were done in P8 and the problem still persists.

Here is the comparison:

Needless to say that because of Primes sever auto-label bug it was necessary to manually re-label all occurrences of "q" the same.

EDIT:

Funny, I started my reply even before you edited yours and added the question as of the behaviour in P6 😉

Here is another finding which might give a clue why the new engine fails:
