I'm having problems installing R2013a on OSX Yosemite.
  • I uninstalled Matlab, then installed JDK 8u25.
  • Downloaded Matlab.
  • No dice...
Going forward:
  • Looked at the published patches but they seem to obtain for already installed Matlab .
  • If possible, I'm not into hacking any files with a text editor.
Is it true that student licenses don't get any technical support? Please pay some attention to student concerns!
Thanks

To install on Yosemite:
1) Check if you have Java SE 6 for x86_64.
From the Mac terminal, you can use this command to check:
/usr/libexec/java_home -V
If you don't have it, install it from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572
2) After calling the "/usr/libexec/java_home -V", note the directory where Java SE 6 is located. Mine was "/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home"
3) Find the install file from the Matlab installation directory. Drag it to your Terminal, insert a space, then type "-javadir", another space, then the directory where Java SE6 was. It should look something like this (on one line):
/Users/asdf/Desktop/mathworks_downloads/MATLAB2013/install -javadir /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home

riddhi desai, Mathworks offers free support for installation problems for all licenses (including Student licenses). Please contact Mathworks for assistance on this matter.

Yes, student editions get free installation support.
Did you overlook the Yosemite link in the blue box at the top of this page?

Then call them. I know , or at least I read , that students are getting things working, and you should be able to also.

Hello, I am having the same issue. Cannot get the Matlab R2013a student to install under Yosemite.
Did you find a solution?

I was having the same issue and I called (508) 647-7000 for technical support from them, there is a recording and it will ask you which kind of help you are looking for. You can specifically choose to get help with installation and then it will transfer you to a person.
They were very helpful, asked me a few questions and then sent me an email with directions and guided me through the process while I was on the phone (it was probably 20 minutes maximum including download time). I would highly recommend calling if you are having installation issues.
After I was finally able to install it, the patch worked. Hopefully you guys can get MATLAB working too!
