I am trying to install Matlab R2012b on an iMac with Mountain Lion installed. I am doing this as an administrator. However, for some reason I get the error message: "Unable to create destination folder /Applications/MATLAB_R2012b.app. Please choose another destination folder". Any idea how I can circumvent this problem?
