How do I install matlab on newton?

Borrow the Matlab CD's from the helpdesk. Currently, we are installing Matlab R2006a: Windows.

You will need to install software from 3 CDs. Running autoconf installs all the tool-boxes and simulink. You will need to answer some questions, including the number of CALS to which you are entitled.

When you are asked for the PLP, use the string found in \\winsww\sww\public\matlab\r2006a\. In addition, you will need to add a line to the license.dat file that is installed with the CDs.

If matlab complains that the license file syntax is invalid, it is likely because it is looking for a line in license.dat file that was not installed with the software.

In license.dat, beneath the line:
SERVER cs2.CS.Berkeley.EDU 83052508 27000
insert:
USE_SERVER

For some reason the departmental CDs do not have the latter in the license.dat file, but it is essential.

Members of the appropriate matlab license group should now be able to use remote desktop to run matlab on newton.
