Q1: I got ML-SL Student R2018b re-installed to my Dell laptop (as Licensence # 40079207 on my account). Can the Student 2020a ToolBoxes (for examples Motor Control Block Set, Antenna TB, RF TB, Simscape Electric, etc.....) work GOOD (ie. NO Trouble, NO Bugs, NO Errors, etc... ) with ML-SL Student R2018b? Please confirm Y/N and explain in details/suggestions/advice!
Q2: If your answer is "GOOD" for above Q1, then how/what Steps can I choose/place the Student R2020a ToolBoxes order?
Q3: My this current Dell-2017 Intel-i5-processor Win-10 Laptop has CRASHED oftenly (thus I did renew Win-10 the whole laptop, ie. renewing the whole laptop and I lost all schoole PDF files). If this Dell laptop ever Crashes again in near future (for example 5 months from today or 2 years from today, and I need to renew the whole laptop with new Win-10 re-installation again), am I allowed to re-install ML-SL Student R (that I paid)? If YES, then How many times am I allowed to re-install ML-SL Student for this same laptop after Crashed-trouble Renewals?
Q4: My brother gave me his Dell Intel-i3-processor Win-10 Laptop as a Backup for me (in case my above Dell i5-processor Laptop ever Crashes again), am I allowed to install the above ML-SL Student R2018b (that I paid) ALSO to this Dell i3-processor Laptop (as the 2nd Laptop)?
Q5: How long years does ML-SL Student R2018b work actively GOOD (OPERATIONAL GOOD for 1 year, 10 year, etc...; ie. I am still be able to open, use, learn...)?
Q6: 2 days ago, I ordered ML-SL Student 2020a with some Student 2020a ToolBoxes (order # 12042766, License # 40925698, I paid $200.81 already, but HAVE NOT DOWNLOADED/installed yet). DUE to my current tough financial situation, I am thinking "TO CANCEL the order of MLSL Student R2020a, but KEEP the Student R2020a ToolBoxes DEPENDING Your Answer to my above Q1). Please advise Which Best Smooth method that I better to do (in order to get ML-SL Student and ToolBoxes RUNNING SMOOTH, NO Bugs, No Errors)!
Thanks,

Q1: No. You will need to use the toolboxes from the same release as the release of MATLAB you're using. Running toolbox versions from release R2018b in MATLAB release R2020a is not supported and neither is running toolboxes from R2020a in MATLAB R2018b.
Q2: I'm not certain but I believe you can still purchase add-ons for release R2018b through the online store.
Q4: See the License Agreement. It comes up in the Installer before you install the software, or you can access it in your installation (Home tab on the Toolstrip, Resources section, click the triangle below the Help icon, select Terms of Use.)
Q5: The Store FAQ states "For how long can I use student software?
You can use student software indefinitely. After you graduate you may need to purchase a professional license."
Q6: If you want to use the versions of toolboxes included in release R2020a you will need to be using the version of MATLAB from release R2020a.

Thanks Steven much for As! I have some more Qs (if you do not mind):
  • Q7: Is ML-SL Student R2020a (and its ToolBoxes) good operational if I install this pack into Dell Intel-i3-processor Win-10 laptop?
  • Q8: For the order # 12042766 [License # 40925698, I already paid $200.81 including ML-SL Student R2020a with 9 additionally-paid ToolBoxes at $10 for each TB, but HAVE NOT DOWNLOADED/installed yet], I want to add some more ToolBoxes (at $10 each, NOT $17, 19, 29 each) to this order. Should I CANCEL this order and Restart new order?
Please advise! What do I need to do? Who should I call/contact for this?
Thanks,
Tom
