Designated Computer License Administration

A Designated Computer License authorizes you to install and run MathWorks® software on only one computer. The installation is restricted for use to a Host ID that identifies a particular computer, but not a particular user. Any number of people can log in and use the software, but not simultaneously.

The fundamental tasks required to administer an Designated Computer License are:

  • Installing the software — To use the software, you must install the product files on your computer — see Install the Software.

  • Activating the installation — After you install the software on your computer, you must activate the software—see Activate the Installation.
