when i have an already opened matlab session and i'm trying to open a new script from the windows explorer i receive the License Manager Error -9, because it tries to open a new matlab session. But it gets in trouble, because i'm allowed to only run one session at a time. How can i say matlab to run the new scipt in the existing session and not open a new one?
Thank you for your help.

This question is specific for operation system, as is the solution. Could you confirm you are indeed running Windows? And which one?

I have tried both solutions but none worked for me. I also tried the MATLAB File Association Fix by Patrik Forssén, which doesn't work either.
Have you any other solutions?

This does not solve your problem, but the work around is trivial:
Do not use the Windows Explorer to start M-files, but start them from inside Matlab. Matlab is designed to open and start M-files.

Yes. this would be possilbe but is a quite unconvinient work around.

Really? But this is the nature of Matlab. For me opening M-files throught the explorer of the OS would be an inconvenient indirection. There is a file browser insider Matlab's GUI, but I prefer dedicated GUIs.
