How to install MATLAB on Windows 7

I have been attempting to install Matlab (64-bit version) on my machine which has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I have the latest version of JRE, and I have tried installing using the Windows Classic theme (a solution proposed in another thread).

I have tried both Matlab r2009b (installation stops at 76%- post-installation tasks) and 2010a (installation stops at 75%- post-installation tasks). I am installing using a license through my university, if that matters.

Matlab installation whole system freezes

I am new in Windows 7 Home premium and I have a "small" problem with installing matlab. While the installation starts the progress bar is showing that installation is proceeding well, but after a while it stucks and the needed time for the installation increases (exponentially) and the whole system freezes and I can not do anything.

I tried to install Matlab 2012b and 2010b and the same problem occurs with both matlab versions. That makes me . What could be the problem?

MATLAB not Opening: opening logo screen then went off

I am using Windows 7 professional x64. Recently I installed x64 version of MATLAB 7.10. Installation is perfect. It also worked perfectly for about five times. Then later it just flash the opening logo screen then went off. I checked the task manager for the process. Matlab is there consuming almost 50% of CPU.

I tried all methods of disabling visual themes and compatibility modes. also tried disabling java option with "-jvm" sometime it opens and some times not!

I am having recent version opf JAVA. So I decided to switch to 32 bit version as I have previously used 32bit version of Matlab 2009.

32 bit version of matlab 2010 worked perfectly but now it is also behaving like the previous 64 bit version!

I don't know where the problem is there is not any log files regarding this! I also mention that I had used 32bit MATLAB 2009 previously it is perfect and also no such problem!

Is it a problem with MATLAN 2010 or JAVA or Windows 7?

Installing the abandoned Microsoft JVM under Windows 7

For getting an older version of MATLAB (6.5 R13) to work under Windows 7, I needed to install the abandoned Microsoft Java VM. Even if MS states that this is not compatible, I got it to work under the 64-bit edition of Windows 7:

1) Get the last version of the Microsoft JVM (Build 3810) from some website, it's usually called "msjavx86.exe".

A still working official link is (despite the different filename) [LINK]

2) Use your favourite zip tool like 7-Zip to extract the "msjavx86.exe" file to some directory.

3) Open a command prompt in that directory and type: javatrig /l

4) A dialog will appear indicating that the Java VM is not compatible with Windows 7. Ignore it and just click on "Run program".
