HOW TO INSTALL MATLAB SOFTWARE?

By Admin on

Step  1: Start the Installer

Copy the products files (including the installer file) to your computer or an accessible location (for example, a DVD, USB drive, or network share).

Start the installer. The method you use to start the installer depends on your platform and whether you are accessing previously downloaded product files or are using a DVD,.

Windows

Previously downloaded product files — If you or an administrator downloaded the product files previously and copied the product files to your computer, a network share, or to media, go to the top level of the folder where the product files are located and click setup.exe.

DVD installation — Insert the DVD into the DVD drive connected to your system. The installer usually starts automatically.

Mac OS X

DVD installation — Insert the DVD into the DVD drive connected to your system. When the DVD icon appears on the desktop, double-click the icon to display the DVD contents, and then double-click the InstallForMacOSX icon to begin the installation.


Previously downloaded product files — If you or an administrator downloaded the product files and copied the extracted files to your computer, a network share, or to media, go to the top level of the folder where the product files are located and double-click the InstallForMacOSX icon to begin the installation.

Linux

Previously downloaded product files — If you or an administrator downloaded the product files and copied the extracted files to your computer, a network share, or to media, go to the top level of the folder where the product files are located and execute the installer command:

./install

DVD installation — Insert the DVD into the DVD drive connected to your system and execute this command:

/path_to_dvd/install &

Depending on how your system is configured, you might have to mount the DVD first. Make sure you mount it with execute permissions, as in the following example. Note that the name of the DVD drive might be different on your system.

mount -o exec  /media/cdrom0

Step 2: Install With a File Installation Key



If you do not have an Internet connection, but have access to product files on your computer, a network share, or a DVD, select the Use a File Installation Key option and click Next.


Step 3: Review the License Agreement



Review the software license agreement and, if you agree with the terms, select Yes and click Next.

Step 4: Specify the File Installation Key

If you do not have an Internet connection, and choose to install manually, the installer displays the File Installation Key dialog box. A File Installation Key identifies the products you can install.

If you have the key, select the I have the File Installation Key for my  license option, enter the File Installation Key, and click Next. The administrator contact on a license can retrieve the File Installation Key from the License Center at the MathWorks website.

If you do not have the key, select the I do not have the File  Installation Key option and click Next. The installer provides you with the information you need to get a key.


If You Do Not Have the File Installation Key

The Installation and Activation Next Steps dialog box contains the information you need to retrieve your File Installation Key from the License  Center at the MathWorks website. This information includes:

Host ID

Release number (for example, R2015b)

Operating system user name (Note that user names are case-sensitive in activation.)


To get your File Installation Key:

Copy the information displayed in this dialog box and click Finish to exit the installer. On Windows and Linux systems, you can click Print to print the information.

Go to a computer with an Internet connection and log in to your account at the MathWorks website.

Visit the License Center and enter the information from this dialog box. MathWorks uses this information to generate a License File and a File Installation Key for your license.

Return to your computer and run the installer again. With the File Installation Key and a License File, you can install and activate the software without an Internet connection.

Step 5: Specify the Installation Folder

Specify the name of the folder where you want to install MathWorks products. Accept the default installation folder, or click Browse to select a different one. If the folder does not exist, the installer creates it.

When specifying a folder name, you can use any alphanumeric character and some special characters, such as underscores. If you make a mistake while entering a folder name and want to start over, click Restore Default Folder. After making your selection, click Next.


Step 6: Specify Products to Install

Specify which products you want to install in the Product Selection dialog box. This dialog box lists all the products associated with the license you selected or with the Activation Key you specified. In the dialog box, all the products are preselected for installation. If you do not want to install a particular product, clear the check box next to its name.

After selecting the products you want to install, click Next to continue with the installation.



Note: If the product files are not located on your computer or the installer is not located in the same folder as the product files, the installer will be unable to find products to install.

Step 7: Specify Installation Options

You can specify several installation options, depending on your platform.

Windows Systems

On Windows, the Installation Options dialog box lets you choose whether to put shortcuts for starting MATLAB in the Start menu and on the desktop.

After selecting installation options, click Next to proceed with the installation.
