 Install guide

When you launch the installer you will be prompted to login with your MathWorks account. Select the products to be installed from the Toolbox list and install it after downloading it. When installing a PC not connecting to internet, enter the installation key activated in advance. Please note that downloading and installing is very time consuming when installing all 50 products available for the contract because the file size to be downloaded are very large (approximately 10GB).

Q. Can I use MATLAB outside of the university?
A. Licenses of  Disignated Computer and Student can be used outside the campus. For overseas, it is available if it is less than 3 months. but depending on the country it may be subject to the export control law. So pleas check with your own risk. Nework license can not be used because it can not refer from outside the campus. 

Q. When start up, the message "MATLAB license expiration date will end in xx days" will be displayed, Do I have to something?
A. Because it is one-year contract, it will be displayed when each year's end comes closer, but when contract of next year is done and license is renewed it will not be displayed. Please use as it is. On a PC that is individually activated, it shoud be updated automatically because it checks the license routinely. Manual activation may be required if it is not connected to the network. In that case please activate according to the prescribed procedure. 

Q. Can I find Actination key?
A. Activation key is no longer required.

Q. My affiliation has changed. Do I need to recreate my account with a new email address?
A. Please login to your MathWorks account with registered e-mail address and change your e-mail address in "Edit Profile". Campus license can be used only  "m.titech.ac.jp" and can not be changed.
