To install MATLAB or other MathWorks products on an offline machine, complete the following tasks:
  1. Download a complete set of installation files and copy them to the offline computer. Do not skip this step.
  2. Activate MATLAB in the License Center to obtain the license file and file installation key (FIK).
  3. Install MATLAB or other MathWorks Products.
1) Download Installation Files
In order to install MATLAB or other MathWorks products on an offline machine, you must first download a complete set of installation files. Do not skip this step.
Note: The ~300 MB installer downloaded from the MathWorks website is NOT a complete set of installation files.
If you attempt to install MATLAB on an offline machine without first downloading a complete set of installation files, you will encounter an error and be unable to proceed with the installation.
Instructions for downloading the offline installation files can be found here:
2) Activate MATLAB to obtain the license file and File Installation Key (FIK)
You must also activate your license to the offline machine before running the installer to obtain the File Installation Key and the license file.
To activate for an offline machine, see the following article:
Please note that for network licenses, you will require a server license file.  If you do not have the server license file, please contact your License Administrator(s).
3) Install MATLAB or other MathWorks Products
After you have the installation files, the File Installation Key, and the license file, you are ready to install MATLAB and other MathWorks products..
  1. Launch the MathWorks Installer from the installation files
  2. Select "Advanced Options" in the top right of the installer. For R2019b and older, choose the 'offline' or 'Use a File Installation Key' installation method.
  3. Enter your File Installation Key (FIK), then select Next.
  4. (R2020a and newer) Browse to the license file, then select next and continue through the installation.
  5. After the installation is completed, you may launch MATLAB.
For R2019b and older, you will be prompted to activate after the installation is completed.
  1. Once your installation completes, the activation client will automatically launch.
  2. In the activation client, select “Activate manually without the Internet”
  3. Select the first option, “Enter the full path to your license file…”
  4. Browse to the license file.
  5. If you receive an 'Activation Complete' message, MATLAB is installed and activated.

I've wasted more than half a day trying to install offline.
Version 2020a just crashes when I try to run even the simplest script. I reinstalled, it downloaded everything again, this didn't work. I downloaded the software and jumped through the hoops to get the file installation number and try to install. It says it can't find files.
So do I have to try and install it again off the net only to find its not going to work again. How much time do I have to waste trying to get this thing to work when I paid a good chunk of change for it?

For at least the last 5 years, Linux systems will activate if the host ID in the license file matches any of the ethernet interfaces on the system.

Jack: what would you propose that would permit Mathworks to distinguish between "paying customers -- like us" and those who are not in fact paying customers and are instead trying to run MATLAB for free without a license?
Mathworks has a continued problem with people wanting to pirate their software. It is considered a truism in the software industry that every license validation mechanism must end up inconveniencing legitimate users.
Literally the only way that I have ever heard of to prevent license validation problems is for the software to have no license protection mechanisms at all, and hope that people are still willing to pay for what they can copy for free.

Hello, At the moment, I am trying to package 2016B so it can be deployed automatically via SCCM to the business. During the installation, it asks for a file Installation key. I have managed to download the software but do not have a file installation key. In the past, we have managed to package the application with all of the toolboxes, but the end user would not be able to use them unless they had the correct license file to activate.
Was hoping that we could have a File Installation Key that allows me to install all of the toolboxes? Please Note: even though they are installed, they cannot be activated without the proper license file

This process does not work for me. While running the R2017b Installer, after selecting "the 'offline' or 'Use a File Installation Key' installation method", I'm still getting the "The application could not connect to MathWorks." Any suggestions?

Tip that helped me. When running the installer make sure you run it with admin rights. Right-click on the file, choose "Run as administrator" and then it runs well

Your license might require an activation key to reactivate. In that case, I would contact your license administrators for the activation key.

Sure you can install and use matlab for free! You just have to be willing to be a criminal theif and steal the license from a shady torrent site that will most likely include a trojan virus along with it. Barring that, If you are a student at a graduate college, ask the school for a copy. Most of them pay for a site license that covers all of their students educational uses.

I just bought MATLAB with Home license and I need to install it in offline mode, since I'm using NixOs I can't access the interntet during installation (purely functional installation means no side effects), I can download files if I provide sha256 sums. Don't understand why home license users can't activate offline, hope I didn't waste my money.

HOW MUCH DATA REQUIRE TO DOWNLOAD MATLAB?

For MATLAB itself, less than 5 gigabytes. For MATLAB with a bunch of toolboxes it can exceed 35 gigabytes.

I don't know if my problem needs a similar solution, but I can't install matlab with my academic license inside my user account of a server of my university. During the installation, it asks me for the key. I didn't have the same problem when I installed it in my personal computer. How can I resolve this problem?

Sorry, the volunteers who answer questions here do not have access to the license database, and cannot provide keys or grant trial licenses. You will need to request a trial through https://www.mathworks.com/campaigns/products/trials/matlab.html or contact Mathworks Sales.
