Install on one computer two version in same time ?

Postby Ender » Wed Apr 28, 2010 6:42 am

Hello Lubin,

How do you do to easily reproduce the problems from the users, who are using different versions ?

Is it possible for me to install Matlab 2010a and 2007b and two version of blockset in same time on the same computer ?

And for Alex is it possible to use Matlab 2007b 32bit and 64bit on his computer ?

Hello Thierry,

It is possible to have two matlab version installed on the same computer.

However, with Windows 7 64 bits, too old matlab version do non install properly (below 2007a as far as I remember)
Anyway, you can install 64 and 32 bits matlab. You’ll just need to re-create matlab starting shortcut as they takes same place and names for 64 or 32 bits of same matlab version (i.e. 2010a) .

Solution for older matlab is to use a dual boot (what I get now : my older system (XP32) in // with the new one (7-64) which I install on a brand new hard drive) or more practically : virtualization (install a windows XP 32 in a VMware virtual computer)
