New toolbox installation activation with site license

2 views (last 30 days)
The company has a Matlab site license. I was authorized to add 2 toolboxes to my license. The toolboxes were installed and show up in the Add-On Manager window, yet when I type "ver" at the prompt only Matlab with original toolboxes previously installed show up. Is there an additional step required to activate these additional toolboxes?

MATLAB stores a list of toolboxes in a cache file.
If you install a new toolbox, the cache file may not be updated.
To resolve this issue, you can update the toolbox cache file by executing the following command from the MATLAB Command Window:
>> rehash toolboxcache
After executing this command, please restart MATLAB and execute the "ver" command again. It should now list all the toolboxes installed on your machine.

The answer above helped me find the full solution to this issue that has been addressed by the Mathworks team here:
The key was these two additional commands:
>> restoredefaultpath
>> savepath
Thank you for the initial tip that led me to this solution.
