Matlab won't finish installing as requires "DVD 2" but am not installing from a disk and there are no files available to run in the DVD 2 file extracted from the compressed Matlab folder.

Make sure you eject dvd1 before proceeding.
Download Virtual Clone Drive.Click on the top arrow icon on the right bottom side of your Desktop screen. Right click the Virtual Clone Drive Icon. Find the drive where dvd1 file was kept in (mine was H:). Click Mount and find the dvd2 file. dvd2 file is now mounted in the same drive as dvd1 (H:). Now go back to the MATLAB installer and click ok to overwrite the error. This should work and I hope it helps.

After downloading iso formats of both cd. cd1(around 7 GB) and cd2(arounf 2.5 GB), do the following steps: 1). Unmount CD1 and install that.
2). then it would ask you to eject cd1 and insert CD2 at this point you have to open My Computer and from there you have to eject CD1 by right clicking on it.(but rememeber the drive name)
3). Now unmount CD2(but be careful because the drive name for CD2 must match the drive name of CD1).
4). Now press OK on the pop up which was asking for inserting CD2.
Done. Now it should be installed.
That worked for me and i hope that would work for everyone.

if you are installing them from a directory (i.e an extracted ISO), you can rename the DVD1 directory to "DVD1_bak" and then rename the "DVD2" directory to "DVD1", then go back to the GUI where it is asking you to insert DVD2 and click on "OK". The installation should continue then.
