I recently changed my system to Windows 7 Beta and installed Matlab R2007b on it. The installation progress went well but I can not run it.

After I double-clicked on the Matlab icon on the desktop, the boot window came out then disappeared quickly. But the main window never came out. I have checked windows running processes, the Matlab was not running any longer. Running under "compatibility mode" doesnt work as well.

Are there any other friends here facing the same problem?

Yes, when I run Matlab 7 on windows 7, it gives me a VC++ Runtime Error.
Same situation.

OK...I finally found the solution for this problem.
Simply change your theme to classic windows theme!
It works for me now.
If it does not work, it might be some steps I did before change theme.
I set the Matlab webserver service to Manual, but this did not fix the problem.

I was having the same problem installing Matlab R2007a in Windows 7 beta. Switching to the Windows Classic theme worked for me as well. Thanks for the tip Dave.

The easy solution would be to open 'matlab.exe' properties, go to "Compatibility" tab and select "Disable desktop composition".

This would allow you to enjoy the bubbly Win7 themes whenever you are doing other things, but switch to Basic theme once you try to run Matlab.

then open F:\MATLAB7\sys\java\jre\win32 or to a similar folder in c: where you installed matlab paste the copied folder in that folder rename a folder named jre1.4.2 which is already in the folder or similar folder to a different name and give the newly copied folder the old name of the folder which you just renamed

Hi,

Running in the classic windows theme, or checking "Disable desktop
composition" in the properties for matlab.exe both work for me.
(Changing the Java engine did not seem to make a difference, though.)
However, both of these settings will prevent you from using the Aero
theme.

I got MATLAB 2007b to work with Aero by following the steps on this
link:

  http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/159717

Briefly:

  1. Right click on my computer, and select properties
  2. Click "Advanced system settings"
  3. Click "Environment variables ..."
  4. Click "New ..." and add a variable named "MATLAB_RESERVE_LO"
with a value of "0".

Hit "OK" to close these dialog boxes, and MATLAB should work just like
a normal program in Aero!

So, I did the java folder fix, and matlab does run. But, a bunch of things run a little funky (like the underlines under the parentheses), and sisotool starts to run but gets a bunch of java errors and can't actually do anything. Changing back to the old java version and going to windows classic mode fixes all of this. I have jre6 (at least, that's the folder name in program files (x86) --> java --> jre6. Is there an old version of java that will work with windows 7 and matlab? The same problem happens even when I am in vista compatability mode and the desktop composition is enabled

Any other ideas?

Thanks a lot

I've had similar results to Mathew ^^^

When I try to start Matlab under normal Windows 7 settings I get a pop-up "Error Starting Desktop" with about 50 lines of java.something.or.other.

- Changing Compatability mode to Vista causes it to die on startup without the error message.

- Selecting "Disable desktop composition" does nothing.

- Copying over the java directory results in a warning message: "Warning: Unable to load Java Runtime Environment: C:\%matlab-directories%\jre1.5.0_05\bin\server\jvm.dll is not a valid Win32 application", then after OK displays another warning: "Warning: Disabling Java support" and then starts some crippled version of Matlab with only a prompt.

- Adding the environment variables causes Matlab to close immediately upon startup.

- Running Windows 7 with the Classic theme is the only method I've found to work for me, so I'm still interested in finding a better solution.

Maybe this thread is dead by now, but I've used yet another solution
which might work for others as well:
Replacing the jre-folder and/or adding a new variable as described
above didn't work for me (Matlab 7.0.1 with Win7Pro and jre6
installed). I could start Matlab without the long list of java errors,
but then when using the program, e.g. plot tools, error messages still
showed up. In addition, browsing to a different working directory
caused the program to crash.

Inspired by a tip on a related problem (http://www.mathworks.com/
support/solutions/en/data/1-AUXDGC/index.html?product=ML&solution=1-
AUXDGC), I ran already the Matlab setup.exe in Vista compatibility
mode. This alone didn't work either, but setting the Matlab to run in
Vista mode finally solved the problem, so now I can use Matlab with
Aero still enabled, without java error messages.

Dave,

I installed Matlab 7 in a Toshiba S300L Notebook with Windows 7 Professional. It worked after changing themes to Windows Classic. It had a lot of error messages when returning to the usual personal Theme. I copied the folder ...\jre6 to the corresponding folder al Matlab directory (as told by Recluze at http://recluze.wordpress.com/2009/07/30/matlab-7-under-windows-7/) and it worked correctly with my usual theme but it poured with java error messages at the command window when tried to change the properties of one of my usual plots (bode plot from the Control System Toolbox). While I look for a solution, I think I will change to Windows Classic Theme when working with Matlab 7.

Greetings.

Rigel.

At first i've encountered the same problem with you.
The solution is easy, just change the compatible mode to windows 2000.
I hope it will work with yours too.

We solved this problem by starting matlab with the -nosplash option.
(in the shortcut the target is: "C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007b\bin\matlab.exe" -nosplash)

Hi all,
Just wanted to share my experience.
To me running on "Vista Compatibility Mode" was the easiest of all the possible solutions. Nothing more to do, no folders to move, everything works fine.

I used the same approach for installing COMSOL 3 and was equally successful after having failed to install/run it with other methods.

Thanks for the tip !!!

PS: I was surprised that "WinXP compatibility mode" doesn't work...
