Before you can activate MATLAB on a computer that is not connected to the internet, you must obtain your Host ID and possibly your user or login name, depending on your license type.
To obtain your Host ID, follow the instructions in this article:
What is a Host ID? How do I find my Host ID in order to activate my license?
Windows user name (Login Name for Mac) is required for Individual or Student licenses. To obtain your user or login Name, follow the instructions in this article:
How do I find my computer username in order to activate my license?
After obtaining your Host ID and/or user or login name:
  1. Go to the License Center: <https://www.mathworks.com/mwaccount>
  2. Under My Software, click the license number you want to activate. If you do not see your license number, in the bottom right hand corner, click View Additional Licenses or Trials.
  3. Click the Install and Activate tab
  4. Click Activate to Retrieve License File or Activate a Computer.
  5. Enter the following information: the release you are activating, the operating system, the host ID, your user or login name, and the Activation Label.
  6. Download the license file
  7. Activate MATLAB. See Activate MATLAB Installation Manually for options.
  8. At Select License, browse to the license file you just downloaded.
  9. When prompted, click Finish to exit the activation process.
  10. Start MATLAB
You must be a License Administrator to activate a network license.

The File Installation Key would not be in the license file.
To retrieve a File Installation Key for a license which is already activated:
  1. Log into the License Center here: http://www.mathworks.com/licensecenter
  2. Click on the desired license
  3. Select the "Install and Activate" tab
  4. Click the blue arrow under "Get License File"
  5. If you do not see the activated machine and blue arrow, press "Update License File" to open the correct menu
  6. Select a release
  7. Specify that the software is not yet installed
  8. The File Installation Key will appear on this screen

It appears that you have found a File Installation Key, but that you have not downloaded the installation files yet, or else you are not running the installer executable that is in the directory that you downloaded the installation files into.

I solved the issue mentioned in the comments: DO NOT run the Matlab Activation Client
Matlab must have changed the activation client GUI but never bothered to update their FAQ.
After you complete steps 1-8 in the official answer, do the following additional steps:
  1. Copy the downloaded liscence file to the following directory (using Windows): C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\{version}\licenses
  2. Delete any other liscence file already in that directory
Now you can start Matlab, and this time the activation client will not run. You do not, repeat, DO NOT need to run the activation client.

Thank you very much. This worked wonderfully, whereas the instructions from MATLAB did not work. Amazing.

I would seriously like customer service or help center or whomever to try and follow your own directions. I give up.

Hello,
You should see the license right on that page that is linked on step one. If you have several licenses and do not see it, then there will be a "View additional licenses or trials" button. If you need assistance please contact MathWorks Support.

Note that the host ID for matlab 2008b (and most surely up to matlab 2013), is resolved from the MAC of eth0 (and no other) on linux.
Recent linux have different interface name instead of eth0.
It is not indicated, but you should reboot after reconfiguring grub at the end of the instructions.

Hi,
I can't install MATLAB following these ofline instructions.
I've got a license.lic. Where I have to put license.lic file? in _temp_matlab_R2019a_win64 folder?
After write my File Installation Key it shows next message:
'Using a File Installation Key requires you run the installer from a MATLAB DVD or from a directory which contains files previously downloaded via the installer.
To obtain the missing files, click Back on the previous screen and select Log in with a MathWorks Account or contact your MATLAB license administrator. '
What can I do?
Thanks,
Ana

No offence, But I find a lot of pirate version of MATLAB installation guide much more easy to follow.
And they have a much higher successful rate!!
Although I have a license.

Pirate versions only have to deal with one license type and one installation situation.

Hey Eliza,
I had the same issue you did earlier, and my solution is one I posted earlier on this thread:
  1. Copy the downloaded liscence file to the installation folder, i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\{version}\licenses
  2. Delete any existing liscence files already in that folder
This will prevent the activation client from popping up again.
Nathan

Got it to work finally!! I'm trying to download 2009 Student (yes in 2020 lol) and these directions worked through downloading a license file (step 6). I wasn't given an option to activate my license without internet in the activation window so I wasn't able to do steps 7-10. I moved the downloaded license file from my download folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2009a Student\licenses and once I put it in the license folder I was able to start Matlab without going through the activation window, it just opened up! woohoo! Thanks!!

The activation procedure was a bit different before R2011b.
