|Installing and Using MATLAB on Mac OS X|
When you purchase products, The MathWorks sends you license information by e-mail or fax. You use this licensing information to create a License File. If you did not receive your license information, see Obtaining Your License File from The MathWorks.
The license information you received from The MathWorks contains a set of license passcodes. These license passcodes
The following is a sample set of license passcodes sent by The MathWorks. Lines that begin with a pound sign (#) are comments. The TMW_Archive
INCREMENT line specifies the products you are licensed to install. The other
INCREMENT lines identify products you are licensed to run. In this example, the
USER_BASED keyword in the
INCREMENT lines indicate it's a user-based license.

Creating a License File
When you receive your license e-mail message from The Mathworks, open a text file, using a text editor, and copy the section of the message marked by the
END lines into that text file. Name the file
license.dat and store it on your desktop or in any convenient directory. We recommend you save the
license.dat file on your desktop because the Installer will automatically find it and use it for the installation. If you save it in a different location, you will have to locate it for the Installer. For more detailed information about License Files and licensing, see the License Management chapter in the Installation Guide for UNIX.
When creating a License File, note the following:
INCREMENTline by your e-mail program. If you need to continue an
INCREMENTline onto more than one line, use the \ (backslash) character, as in the following:
|Note If your editor gives you the option of using Macintosh or UNIX line endings, you must select UNIX.|
If you received your license passcodes in a fax, create the License File in the same way, typing in the license passcode information exactly as it appears in the fax. Note that License Files are case sensitive.
Obtaining Your License File from The MathWorks
If you do not have your License File, you can obtain it by contacting The MathWorks via:
www.mathworks.com/mla. Log in to MATLAB Access using your last name and Access number. MATLAB Access membership is free of charge and available to all customers. The primary contact on each license is automatically enrolled in MATLAB Access. The contacts receive their Access number via e-mail.
www.mathworks.comand click Contact Us at the top of the page.
Please have ready, or include in your e-mail or fax, the following items:
Apple System Profilerapplication in
/Applications/Utilities. Look in the Network overview of the System Profile to find your Mac's Ethernet Address. For example,
en0 is the Ethernet interface. Use the period-separated address such as
8.0.2b.e6.87.59. Note: To use this address as a host ID, you must remove all periods (
.) and prefix any single-digit parts of the address with a zero (
0). For example, the host ID for the address above would be
08002be68759. For more information on determining your host ID, see the Installation Guide for UNIX.
|Note Be sure to provide the host ID of the system on which you plan to run FLEXlm, not the host ID of a client workstation.|
