I just downloaded a student version of Matlab from my university and I am not sure which folder to choose to start up the program. Attached is a screenshot of the folder that I put all of the downloads in that arrived on my desktop. Also, I am using Windows 8, 64-bit. Thanks!
Like the FAQ says, "The Mathworks gives free support for all installation problems, even by telephone and even for the Student Edition. Call them at (508)647-7000. Although the Student Edition normally does not get technical support, it does get support for installation issues."
