In response to the issue you've encountered, specifically the error code -8, I would like to direct your attention to a potentially helpful response from the MathWorks Support Team:
To summarize, the issue may stem from the following:
  • License File Concerns: Ensure that the 'license.dat' file is updated by obtaining a new one from the License Center. It is crucial to avoid unauthorized alterations or incorrect formatting within the file.
  • License Type Verification: For network licenses, it is important to use the appropriate 'license.dat' or 'network.lic' file provided by your Network License Manager's administrator.
  • Network License Manager Setup: If you are utilizing a network license, please ensure that a Network License Manager is correctly set up for activation purposes.
For more detailed information, please refer to the link provided above. I hope that the information provided is helpful in resolving your issue.
