This error typically occurs when installing MATLAB from downloads and one or more of the installation files are corrupt or did not download successfully. To resolve this issue, try downloading the installation files again.
This error may also occur when installing from DVD if the disc is corrupted or the DVD drive cannot read the installation media. In that case, you can request a new DVD from our Customer Service team here:
