Limited amount of licenses

The number of MATLAB licences is limited. To ensure a fair and efficient usage of the licences throughout the ETH the following measures have been put in place:

What can you do?

  1. Compile your MATLAB program. The best approach to avoid excessive usage of MATLAB licences is to compile your MATLAB program. The resulting executable does not need ANY MATLAB licence! This frees you from all MATLAB licence restrictions and also allows you to provide your executable to users without a MATLAB installation.
  2. Exit MATLAB when finished. Only then will all used licences be given back.
  3. Register the need for many MATLAB licences due to a MATLAB course By registering your need in advance, we can take countermeasures and ensure that these licences are available.
  4. Buy your own MATLAB licences if you must have a guaranteed 24/7 service or if you need to use an excessive amount of licences.
