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.

To obtain the MATLAB installer in ISO archive format, see “How do I download a MATLAB ISO archive?” 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.

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.

  1. Create a folder to use as a mount point.
mkdir /media/mathworks
  1. 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
  1. Navigate to the mount point:
cd /media/mathworks
  1. Run the installer script:
./install

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:

Michael Teresi. Your first two lines are correct. Then run

sudo /media/`whoami`/matlab_01/install

At the point when the installation prompts "Insert DVD2" umount the directory /media/`whoami`/matlab_01 and run

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/Downloads/R2016b_glnxa64_dvd2.iso /media/`whoami`/matlab_01

and press OK in the installation prompt.

Could you offer a simple way to see the MD5 of the ISO's? Thank You.

Hi Royi,

On the ISO download page where you see them all available, next to the Filename column there is button that says "(Show/Hide MD5)". You can use that to view the MD5 of the various ISO images.

sudo mount -o loop ~/downloads/matlab.iso /media/mathworks

Use this for creating mount point.

After downloading iso formats of both cd. cd1(around 7 GB) and cd2(arounf 2.5 GB), do the following steps: 1). Unmount CD1 and install that.

2). then it would ask you to eject cd1 and insert CD2 at this point you have to open My Computer and from there you have to eject CD1 by right clicking on it.(but rememeber the drive name)

3). Now unmount CD2(but be careful because the drive name for CD2 must match the drive name of CD1).

4). Now press OK on the pop up which was asking for inserting CD2.

Done. Now it should be installed.

That worked for me and i hope that would work for everyone.

I test with Matlab R2016b, MatlabR 2017a, Matlab R2017b, Matlab R2018a and fedora 28. 1-Open the terminal. 2-su - root. 3-mount -o loop /home/..../R2016b_glnxa64_dvd1. iso /mnt/iso/ "don't forget the iso extension or you can not mount the dvd. 4-run /mnt/iso/bin/glnxa64/install-unix.sh in other version /install.sh 5-when the setup window send to you to eject dvd1 and insert dvd2 then: 5-1)-Open new terminal window. 5-2)-Unmount dvd1 "umount /mnt/iso/". 5-3/-Mount the dvd2 "mount -o loop /home/..../R2016b_glnxa64_dvd2. iso /mnt/iso/" 5-4)-Press ok and the install complete automatically.
