Hi, I am trying to install my Matlab R2012a (student version) on a new Macbook Pro, and when launching the installer I get the following failure message: Exception in thread "main" Guice provision errors:

Any idea what's going on? Thanks in advance, Elad Liebman

It looks like there are issues with R2012a and OSX 10.8

Thanks for the link, but I have xquartz installed (I use X11 quite often). So That doesn't seem to be the main cause of the problem...

Is Apple's Java 6 installed in System/Library/Java. That is needed by R2012a.

I had a same problem. If above answer doesn't work, you may have a macbook that other versions of java installed from oracle.

Remove the java and install MATLAB with Apple's Java.
