  2. Go to the License Center:

  3. Click Associate License in the upper right hand corner.

Install and Activate

  1. Locate the installer you downloaded. It should be located in the default download location, unless another location was chosen. The name of the installer file is:

    • Windows: matlab_<release>_win64.exe

    • Mac OS X: matlab_<release> Where <release> represents the release number.

    • Windows: Double-click the installer file you downloaded in the previous step. The Windows Self-Extractor runs, and then the installer starts.
