Issues installing Matlab - Cannot find the application

22 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I have bought a student license a few days ago and I haven't been able to install it on my computer.
Here is how I've tried to proceed : On Windows, I download my product on the website and I get a single file, of type Application and named matlab_R2021a_win64. I doubleclick it and a popup window tells me the files are unzipping in a new folder, named _temp_matlab_R2021a_win64. Then I am asked to allow the application to modify my computer, which I allow. Then I go to the unzipped file and doubleclick on setup. I am once again asked to allow the application to modify my computer and I allow it again. But then nothing happens. When I search for 'matlab' on my computer, it doesn't give any results.
So i don't know what to do or where I'm supposed to go and open the application.
Can you help me ? Thanks in advance!

It's not installed, installer probably didn't open. Restart the computer and try to open the installer again. Maybe antivirus is causing some issues.
