MATLAB cancel installation problem
7 views (last 30 days)
I was install MATLAB 2018b, during the installation process, when it was download some toolbox, I click the cancel botton and cancel the installation. My question is there any residual file from installation (Since I cancel the installation after it has download matlab and quite few toolbox) ? If there is, how can I delete these file?

Hi, as per my understanding the MATALAB installation has been cancelled in middle of the process. There is a possibility that some files already been copied to your system before the installation has been cancelled. The following steps might help to find MATLAB installation files, if exists.
STEP 1: Go to the path chosen while installation and find the folder named ‘MATLAB’.
> Refer the content below to find the default installation path:
> C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2018b (64-bit MATLAB)
> C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2018b(32-bit MATLAB)
> C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2018b
STEP 2: If there is a file named ‘uninstall’ in the above path, use it to uninstall. (This makes sure for smooth installation for the next time.)
STEP 3: Finally delete all the contents in the folder and remove it.
Refer Installation MathWorks Documentation for more information on installing MATALAB.
