I have been struggling to install Matlab on my Macbook.
I have tried like thousands times but I still can not install it.
(I succeeded installing it on windows via bootcamp though.)
The problem is I cannot go to next at "Select destination" part.
Last week, the error poped up like it can not find the destination (can't remember).
Now it shows that it can't connet to the Mathworks.
I have already tried turning off the firewall and other things.
I also tried to install it with license file but it didn't work as well. It also says it cannot find the destination.
I tried to extract the installation file with keka but it got fatal error for 2 files everytime.
Isn't it supposed to create folder in "Application" by itself?
Help me to find the way

Have you tried all the mentioned cases
In addition to this your account must have administrative permissions to install MATLAB. If you do not have administrative permissions on your Mac, contact your system administrator.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply.
I have already tried everything on that page.
I got ISO file from Mathwork and finally it worked.
Thanks anyways.
