Wine and Matlab 6.5


I have Wine version 20030813 installed in my RH9 system. And Matlab 6.5 installed on Windows XP.

when I try to run Matlab by wine, I get such an error:

Matlab 6.5 isn't register on this computer, this can be due to an hard-drive change (or something like,but it gives th idea)

in fact I got the same error in Windows, when I formatted my my windows partion and installed XP again. Matlab was installed on an other partion so it survived but when I called the exe it gave this error. I am sure that the error is related with registry but I don't know how to edit the registry of wine?

is there somebody can help?

I know Matlab is available for Linux, but I cannot buy one more Matlab for my system. I have one Matlab I can be someho able to run it under Linux by Wine, why shouldn't I try that?

And there is also Octave in Linux, and Koctave. However these aren't enough for my purposes.Forexample I cannot do symbolic operations under octave, that is bad!

I need to run Matlab for many other reasons...

I just need to learn how !

just a thought here, but kewpie was right about matlab being available for unix. if you are seriously going to be using it, it might be a good idea to try getting the unix version.

i'm no pro by any means, but i can't imagine running matlab intensively on linux thru wine would be worth it...

you may be able to get a unix license from matlab and a disc if you give up your windows license to the software, might wanna check and see...

Let me see if i understand correctly

*You installed Matlab on an already installed xp on another partition

*Formatted HD partiton containing xp and reinstalled it

*You are trying to run Matlab (from the partition it was installed before) with the newly installed xp

if im correct, you will need to reinstall matlab again (on that that same partition if you want) in order to work.
Matlab its probably complaining about registy entries or the registration info stored somewhere on the old xp install.
Once you re-install Matlab try running it from xp and see if you receive the same error, if not, try running it from linux with wine to see if it works.

Yes Coproscefal, you are right I did exactly what you said above, however my problem isn't that. The problem is this :

1) I don't want to use Windows just for Matlab 6.5
2) But I cannot run Matlab under Linux

So, how can I run Matlab under Linux?

Thanks

I solved a similar problem with R12 as what you are having with R13 - try looking at the wine database on Matlab; here is the link
