Our site has several distributed dekstop pc's and laptops that we utilize for processing field data. Some of these computers are not able to touch the network. Does MATLAB offer a hardware key liscensing model, such as a usb dongle, for situations such as these? We would like to have each user have their own dongle so they can access MATLAB from any of their PC's

You can install and activate Matlab on an offline machine without any net connection from this computer. You need another computer for the activation. Would this work?

If you don't have network access you can send them information about the computer (like hard disk serial number or computer name or some things like that) and they can send you a File Activation Key that you can type in when it comes time to activate your computer at the end of installation. Call or email them and ask them what they need. DO IT NOW before the weekend starts or you might have to go the whole weekend without it working.
