Install Products on Client Machines

To install MATLAB® on user (client) computers, you must be an administrator for the license or licenses that you want to use when you install MathWorks® products. The person performing the installation must have a MathWorks Account and the license (or licenses) must be linked to that account.

To determine whether you are an administrator for one or more network licenses:

  1. Sign in to your MathWorks Account.

  2. Select a license in the displayed list.

  3. Click "Contact Administrator(s)".

  4. If you see your name there, you are one of the administrators on that license. If you do not see your name and would like to be added, contact one of the names on the list.

Prerequisite for Network Licenses: Install Network License Manager

Your organization may have a mix of individual, designated computer, and network licenses. If you are installing MATLAB on client machines using a network license, you must install the network license manager first. Doing so makes it easier to verify your MATLAB installations, because you can confirm the client computers are accessing the license server correctly at the time of installation.

To install the network license manager on a license server, see Install License Manager on License Server.
