I'm running Matlab R2012a(64-bit) on windows 8 pro (64bit).

To install matlab, i moved the install-files to C:\matlab (run the install as admin/windows xp service pack 3)..

the install and program works perfekt for me.. (:

hope it helps.. (and I hope my english is not to bad )

Yes. My old computer died, so I recently got a new computer with windows 8 installed (so I have no choice on which OS to use).

I moved the installer to Program files/Matlab like the poster above me said. Then I opened it. It will get to a dialogue window that says it's reconfiguring Microsoft Visual C++ 2005, gets to 0%, then... nothing happens. Matlab never installs.

Does this mean I need to download visual studio as well?

Compatibility mode doesn't work for me. I had to install Matlab as 32-bit. It's working, but very slowly and not stable.

> Yes very useful information:
1. Right click the MATLAB icon
2. choose troubleshoot compatibility
3.do not choose recommended setting , choose trouble shoot programme
4. choose window vista(service pack2) only
5. test the programme before you press "Next"
6.progrrame will run
7. save the settings as asked by system
finish

Hey if it is still not working then you can try linux... Install ubuntu or mint and download matlab for linux!!! If you do not want to install linux as an OS you can use simulator if your device's processor is capable enough to run win 8 linux and matlab!!! I won't prefer third option!!!

I also need to run MATLAB R2007A on a very new Windows8 machine. I am trying to run a aeronautical simulation using an older set of library files which runs perfectly on WinXP. I'm pretty sure these libraries are not compatible with the newer MATLABs so I'm kinda stuck here.

I followed the various ideas proposed in the previous posts. The R2007A install program refused to run until I forced a 32bit installation by copying the install disk content to C:\program files (x86)\MATLAB and ALSO making sure the SETUP.EXE was set to Compatibility Mode (Vista service pack 2). Inoticed that on my R2007A install disks there was three SETUP.EXE. One at top, and one in each of the 32 and 64 bit sub-folders. I used the 32 bit one for the most recent attempt that appeared to work.

The installation appears to have gone normally. But now when I try to launch MATLAB I get an entire screen full of "java script" warnings. Almost like JAVA is entirely missing. Do I need to install this for Windows 8?

Any and all advice or help (especially by someone who got this working) would be greatly appreciated!
