Installing Matlab R2012b on Mountain Lion

Asked by Ture VP
on 19 Nov 2012


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/ Please choose another destination folder". Any idea how I can circumvent this problem?

Many thanks!

Does the directory already exist? Is it empty? Can you remove it?

If it does not already exist, what happens if you go in via a Terminal window and

sudo mkdir Applications/
