After installing macOS 10.10 or later (such as macOS 10.11) I am no longer able to launch MATLAB (for any release version). This support article also applies to customers who have successfully installed MATLAB R2014a in macOS 10.10, but are now unable to launch MATLAB.
I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro running OS 10.10.2 and am unable to install the R2013a version of Matlab that I currently own. The InstallForMacOSX.app crashes immediately after opening without an error message.
The directions for installing the patch seem to imply that Matlab already be installed.
I would greatly appreciate some help / advice in getting Matlab up and running again.
I'm in the same boat as Nicolas. The patch doesn't help if Matlab (in my case, trying to install the 2012a MCR) doesn't install in the first place. My 2015a version runs flawlessly, but unfortunately I have programs that need 2012a.
