A ISO file is an archive file of an optical disc, typically a DVD. ISO archives can be burned to actual discs, however many operating systems can mount them directly, mimicking the behavior of physical media.
You must be a license administrator to download an ISO archive of the MATLAB installer.
Mount or burn the ISO archive
On Windows 8.1 and 10, double-click an ISO archive to mount it. The ISO archive will appear under “My Computer” as if it were an actual disk. Alternatively you can right-click an ISO archive to burn it to a DVD. Run "setup.exe" to run the installer once the archive or DVD has been mounted.
If you are installing a multi DVD release, be sure that you dismount the first disk, and then mount the second disk to the same location as where the first disk had been mounted to proceed. For example, Windows users will need to eject disk 1, and then mount disk 2, making sure if disk 1 had been D:, that disk 2 becomes mounted as D:.
Windows 7 cannot mount an ISO archive without third party software. Attempting to open an ISO archive on Windows 7 will result in a prompt to burn the ISO archive to a DVD.
On macOS, double-click an ISO archive to mount it as if it were a physical disk. Alternatively, use Disk Utility (located in /Applications/Utilities) to burn the ISO archive to a DVD. Run "InstallForMacOSX" to run the installer once the archive or DVD has been mounted.
On Linux, you can mount an ISO archive if you create a mount point for it. This procedure may vary depending on your Linux distribution and configuration, however the following steps should work for most Red Hat and Debian-based distributions.
- Create a folder to use as a mount point.
- Mount the ISO to that folder. In this example, the ISO is called “matlab.iso” and is located in the user’s home folder under Downloads:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/downloads/matlab.iso /media/mathworks
- Navigate to the mount point:
- Run the installer script:
Alternatively you can merge the ISO's into a single installation package if you do not want to mount or burn the ISO to disks. The instructions for this process can be found in the link below:
