QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS REGISTERING / INSTALLING MATLAB?

Installation for Other Operating Systems

This guide does not cover installation of Matlab for other platforms as the installation procedures are platform specific but the Registration/Activation (Stage 1), as specified for Windows, is identical.

Once you have downloaded the License Key, the Matlab installer and Matlab packages to your computer, proceed in the usual way to install the software on your computer.
