This issue generally indicates that the license file is served from a network license manager and that there is a problem with the license.dat file on the machine running the license manager. The cause of this error may be due to one of the following:
1. The Host ID for which the license.dat file was generated is not the Host ID of the license server machine
2. Missing, corrupt, or incorrect characters in the license.dat file itself
3. The system time and date are not set properly. Check to make sure that the date and time are set correctly on the machine before proceeding below.
This issue may also occur if you are using MATLAB R2007b or below with a standalone license file generated for R2008a or higher.In this case, generating a license file for the correct release of MATLAB will resolve this issue.
If the time and date are set correctly, and you are not using R2007b or below with a standalone license file for R2008a or higher, see the steps below for troubleshooting the license file:
The first step is to locate the license file (license.dat) for the license manager. The license.dat file on the server machine is located in:
$MATLABROOT/etc
Where are the license files for MATLAB located?
(where $MATLAB is the MATLAB installation directory)
Please check for the following:
1) Make sure that the Host ID specified in the license file matches the Host ID on the "SERVER" line of the license file. Also if the Host ID is not proceeded by "ID=", it must match the Host ID of the license server. For more information on obtaining your Host ID, see the related solution listed below.
The Host ID of the license file will be in a comment line in the license file. For example:
# BEGIN------cut here------CUT HERE-----BEGIN
# MATLAB license passcode file.
# LicenseNo: 123456 HostID: 001122334455
In this example, the Host ID is the MAC address 001122334455. This same MAC address should be in the SERVER line of the license file. For example:
SERVER my-license-host 001122334455 27000
If the wrong Host ID is used in the SERVER line, or if the license file was generated for a different Host ID, this error will occur. Individual licenses use a Host ID that is ID= and the license number. If you have an individual license, this should be the Host ID in the SERVER line. For example:
SERVER my-license-host ID=123465 27000
NOTE: Changing the Host ID listed in the commented section of the license file will not resolve the error. If your Host ID is incorrect, you will need to obtain a new license file generated for the correct Host ID.
2) This error may be the result of having extra carriage returns in your license file. In order to avoid this, ensure that the following strings all begin on a left justified line: #, SERVER, DAEMON, or INCREMENT. Sometimes an INCREMENT line can get wrapped on the end of the preceding INCREMENT line causing it to be omitted.
3) If you are located in Turkey, or the default language of your computer is Turkish, please refer to the article below:
Why do I see license manager error -8 when launching MATLAB on Linux when my locale is set to Turkey?

To resolve such a problem consider coping a bin file from the original Matlab zip folder and pasting it to the bin file in Program files or Drive C. When extracting files some files are not correctly extracted leading to license errors

It takes a lot of resources to produce a video that would cover all of the possibilities on all of the operating systems. You would be better off contacting Mathworks Support for free installation assistance.

Walter Roberson 2016 年 7 月 4 日
Was Mathworks Support unable to assist you with your installation problem?
I estimate that it would take me about a month or two months of full time effort to create a suitable video, as I would have to research all of the possibilities, load all of the different operating systems, figure out how all of those operating systems worked, research all the various ways things could go wrong. Make that three months full time work, perhaps four. Plus the time to learn video editing, and the cost of buying the various operating systems to experiment with. I am sure I would have learned a lot by the end, but keep in mind that during that time I would not be answering Questions here because I would be busy working on the video to answer one Question. A Question that Mathworks Support might already know the answer to for any particular operating system and release.

are all version of MATLAB so complicated to install? I cannot even start the MATLAB R2016a. If there is a version which is simple to install and start. what version is it?

In the case of individual licenses, the last few versions of MATLAB have been easy to install: download the installer, start it running, indicate your agreement with the licenses in the appropriate place, provide your Mathworks login credentials, select which of the products you want to install, indicate where you want to install them, set it executing. Eventually, indicate which user it is authorized for, and request activation.
If you are using a license server for a commercial or academic license, then Yes, matters get more complicated. Unfortunately, license servers do tend to be complicated. The other major vendors of similar software all use the same licensing technology so the situation is the same for them.

Most of the time this error happens when the folders listed in the readme files are not properly copied to the %installdir% to overwriting the originally installed files. So make sure you replace them prperly.

This error condition only applies when a license server is being used. Unfortunately it turns out that license servers are surprisingly complex.
Mathworks uses Flexera's flexlm license server, which is the same license server used by many many software packages, including all of the major competitors to Mathworks that I could think of to check into.

It has since come to my attention that another case in which this problem shows up is in connection to some cracked versions of MATLAB. We delete all information about how to crack MATLAB.

I was getting the same error in Matlab 2017b. I tried the solutions given on this page but they didn't work for me unfortunately. The problem was solved simply by changing the computer name. I bought the new laptop and the computer name was something like Asus-64489 . I just changed it to a 6 letter word like "SkScan". This fixed the problem. AlHamduliLLah

Hi Kashif,
Did you reinstall Matlab after changing the laptop name?

1. The Host ID for which the license.dat file was generated is not the Host ID of the license server machine

That would happen if you installed the network license daemon (flexlm), but that the MAC address you requested the license file be generated for is not recognized as one of the MAC addresses of the license server.
This could happen due to a mistake in which system the license was requested for. It could also happen in some Linux environments due to changes in the ethernet device naming conventions. It can also happen in some OS-X or MacOS environments that have dual thunderbolt displays installed. It can also happen in some Linux systems that have no hardwared ethernet ports (only WiFi) and the system has been configured to randomize the WiFi MAC address on every boot.

Just make a file named as licenses in R2016b folder and then add your license files in that folader. Then copy your bin,licenses and toolbox folder from R2016b folder and paste it in programfiles where your matlab is located.

There is a problem with the license file, and the person who installed MATLAB needs to fix the license file; you can direct them to this current article for more information.
