I am missing something here, CANNOT INSTALL MATLAB7


i hope the answer to this will be very simple

I downloaded matlab7_R14 in 3 iso format.
Firt i tried to install it from the iso's by mounting them on the hard disk.
Everything was going ok when i finally got a message saying:

Setup aborted . . .
The installer cannot be run when your current directory is on the CD.
Change to the target MATLAB installation directory and rerun the installer.

Then i was told to try and burn the cd and try again. I did that to but the same problem occurs.
The instructions say just 'call' ./install from the place where the cd is mounted.
I also tried different options of install but nothing.
I also read the install file and i got nothing it should work

I hate to say it, but I think the clue is in the error message. The instructions are probably wrong.

cd to the install directory, and run the installer from there.

Just enter the full path of the installer, e.g.

$ /mnt/cdrom/install

assuming the CD is mounted at /mnt/cdrom.

matlab installation

hi

i tried with ./install -glnx86 for suse 10.0 matlab. after installation i tried to setup flexlm. i ran commond
./install_matlab 4 -glnx86

it ran properly. but when i tried lmstat then output was showing a problem. output is below:

phy15:/usr/local/matlab/etc/glnx86 # ./lmstat

lmgrd is not running: Cannot connect to license server (-15,570:111 "Connection refused")
-----------------
I was surprised to see that there was no /usr/local/flexlm/licenses/license.dat file for me. I created /usr/local/flexlm/licenses/ and copied licence.dat and license.lic here

again i tried with lmstat

Smile i got a message too

+----------------------------------------------------------------------+
[root@JeeHwang /]# cd /media/MathWorks_R14_1/
[root@JeeHwang MathWorks_R14_1]# ./install

Setup aborted . . .
The installer cannot be run when your current directory is on the CD.
Change to the target MATLAB installation directory and rerun the installer.

[root@JeeHwang MathWorks_R14_1]# cd /usr/local/matlab7
[root@JeeHwang matlab7]# /media/MathWorks_R14_1/install

(install is work!!)
+----------------------------------------------------------------------+

(in install document)
Note. Do not move to the newly mounted CD-ROM directory. Depending on
which products you are installing, the installer might require you to insert
another product CD during installation.

in short, run '(iso or cd mounted directory)/install' in another directory.(not mounted directory)
i wish it will be help
