To install new toolboxes, rerun the MATLAB installer to add any additional products not currently included in your installation..
To download the MATLAB installer, please follow the steps below:
  • Go to the MathWorks downloads page: https://www.mathworks.com/downloads/
  • Click on the blue button for the latest release or on the link beneath for any other release.
  • Log in to your MathWorks Account if you are not already logged in.
  • If you clicked on the link to download any other release, a list with older available releases will be displayed on the right. Click on the desired release.
  • Select the operating system that you are using.
  • The download will begin after you select your operating system.
Before running the MATLAB installer to install an additional toolbox, please keep in mind:
  • Toolboxes must match the release of MATLAB they are installed into, e.g. you cannot install a toolbox for MATLAB R2014b into MATLAB R2015a.
  • MATLAB must be closed in order to run the installer.
  • The MATLAB installer will install new toolboxes in the default MATLAB installation folder. If you installed MATLAB somewhere other than the default folder, you will need to select the folder where MATLAB is installed when prompted for the MATLAB installation location.
  • During installation, you may be prompted to overwrite any existing products. If prompted, opt to skip installation of any existing products.
  • After installation, the activation process will begin. You need to activate your products in order to use them.
  • If you are using a network license, the network license manager may need to be be updated as well. See the following article for more information: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/105860.
  • If the computer is not connected to the internet and you are using a File Installation Key to install the toolboxes, you will need to obtain an updated File Installation Key. See the following article for more information: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/102845.

Hello, Is it possible to update one toolbox to a newer version without updating Matlab ? For instance, I'm running r2013a and I'ld like to update my Instrument Control toolbox to the newest version without changing anything else.
Additional difficulties is that I have no internet connection on the computer I'm working with, and I can interact with the Terminal only (linux).
Thanks a lot !
Sorry, Victor, No, toolboxes can only be purchased for a licensed version of MATLAB. Sometimes this is "just because that's how we do business", and sometimes it is because the toolbox uses features not present in earlier MATLAB. And part of it is not wanting to support all of the combinations: it gets very time consuming and expensive to run all of the validations against multiple earlier versions of MATLAB.
There are sometimes good reasons to stick with old version of matlab, as regressions might break the existing codebase. Inability to add toolboxes to old versions is quite limiting.

The answer by the MathWorks Support Team focusses on Toolboxes that are supplied and licensed by MathWorks. (Which also appeared to be the concern represented in the Original Post.)
There are also many third-party Toolboxes available — often freely — such as on MATLAB Central. There are key differences with these products:
1. Licensing is different.
2. AFAIK, they are not handled by the MATLAB installer or Licence Manager.
3. From statements on MATLAB Central and elsewhere online, it appears that third-party Toolboxes are typically not 'locked' to a specific version of MATLAB. Presumably this issue for the MathWorks's own proprietary Toolboxes is more of a licensing issue. (Of course, occasionally compatibility issues may arise when core MATLAB commands are deprecated or otherwise modified between release versions.)
4. (a) Typically, users are advised to copy the third-party Toolbox to a local folder of the user's choice, and then add that folder to the MATLAB path. See e.g. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3389545/how-to-install-toolbox-for-matlab
(b) A newer feature packages the third-party Toolbox as a *.mltbx file. Example: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/41594-medical-image-processing-toolbox. These are pseudo-self installing. In a Windows environment, simply double-click this file after saving locally, and a MATLAB Toolbox installation GUI will pop up to handle the process. However, even after successful installation the third-party Toolbox is not listed when issuing the ver command. Rather, the third-party Toolboxes can be inspected (and uninstalled) from the Home menu by clicking the Add-Ons button (in the Resources group) and choosing Manage Custom Toolboxes. Behind the scenes, the third-party Toolbox files are extracted (by default) to %MATLABStartUpFolder%\Toolboxes ( cf. 'userpath' [[1]] ), with a file 'toolboxFolders.txt' created that appears to list the relevant paths for installed third-party Toolboxes.

Could you please be a little more specific about the following point:
If you already have MATLAB installed and want to add 1 new toolbox, is it then possible to do this downloading only the new toolbox and installing it, or does one have to download MATLAB together with all the toolboxes already installed plus the new toolbox - and then install everything again.
That is, is there an incremental toolbox installation feature or do you always reinstall the entire installation.
The answer should reflect all versions, but I am specifically interested in R2013a. In addition, I have a DVD. Trying the normal installation procedure, I would have expected the installation program to return specifying which toolboxes that are already loaded and asking if I wanted to add or remove some. This does not seem to be the case. It looks like you reinstall everything you specify, so you have to rememebr to specify the toolboxes you already have installed.

Hi B K,
If you are installing from a DVD, if you select "Custom" when prompted about your installation type, you will be able to select or unselect which toolboxes you want to install. However, the installer will not tell you which toolboxes are already loaded.
You can see which toolboxes are already loaded from within MATLAB. The "ver" command will output which toolboxes are already installed, but you need to run this and save it before running the installer since MATLAB cannot be running while you run the MATLAB installer.
However, there's no harm in reinstalling toolboxes which are already installed. It just takes a little more time.
Regards,

MathWorks Installation & Licensing Support
If you do select a toolbox that you already have installed, then the installer will ask you to confirm that you want to overwrite it; it offers a convenient "No to All" option to quickly allow you to select just the toolboxes that are not already installed.

In sufficiently new versions of MATLAB, there is an additional installation method for Mathworks toolboxes that you have already licensed. The method also works with a lot of the contributions in the File Exchange.
In the command window, click on "Add-Ons", which is most of the way to the right on the ribbon of widgets. In the menu that pops up from there, click on "Get Add-Ons". This will bring up the Add-On Explorer

You can then use the search box to search for the Mathworks toolbox you want. A list of matching entries will be shown to you. Click on the entry you want to be shown details. On that window, there will be a button to trigger installation.
If you are installing a MATLAB Product, then the Add-On Explorer will warn you that it needs to shut down MATLAB. You can take that opportunity to save anything you need saved. You can then continue. MATLAB will shut down, the installer will be launched, and you will confirm installation and proceed.
If you are installing something from the File Exchange, then MATLAB will not need to shut down.

It's an old thread, still thought to answer it.
Initiate the installation as normal, select only the check box corresponding the tool box you want to install. You can see "installed" against your already existing tool boxes and modules. Good luck

L.S>
We just purchased an extra toolbox for Matlab and want to deploy this to our workstations. Is there a way for a network admin to Deploy this toolbox to our workstations without remove/reinstall Matlab completely or redirecting the user to Mathworks.com
regards Henk Croijmans

Can someone clarify if its necessary to download all the .zip files for the toolboxes to the local install DIR, or can the installer login with my creds and using the license pull all those via my proxied internet connection?
Because I am not seeing no toolboxes to install with that method.
I am however able to login with the same creds on mathworks.com and download all 3.9Gb of .zip files using that same license.
Is the internet install broken somehow?
thanks
I downloaded all 3.9Gb of the toolbox .zip files and verified via strace the linux installer is O_RDONLY opening them all yet failing to list them for installation. I was allowed to download them, yet the installer fails to list them for installation. This feels like the installer is not seeing the right license file. I will open a case with support.
thanks

Dear All, I would also have a question in connection with install new toolbox. I downloaded the weaclim toolbox. I would like use it. How I can install this toolbox?

  1 件のコメント

weaclim is a File Exchange Contribution. You download the .zip, unpack it into a directory of its own, and use
pathtool
to add the directory to your MATLAB path.

I installed ml recently (after being forced to install a gui since the headless install procedure is hopeless) , now need to install a package. I hit ./install and get
Preparing installation files...
Installing ...
Finished
which doesn't allow installation of anything more...

Is it possible for me to install MATLAB version R2018a when i already have R2017b installed on my PC? If yes, how? Please help. Thank you.

Yes, it is possible to install multiple versions of MATLAB since each release creates its own directory. For more information on installation, please see the link below.

I'm using version R2017a and having a campus license. I just clicked on the Add-Ons icon on the bar menu from MATLAB and choose Get Add-Ons. It opens a window showing the different products you can add-on, toolboxes included, and all you have to do is click on it. It starts to download and install, very easy in my case.

If I want to add toolboxes to MATLAB installation that has updates installed (like R2018b Update 1), it refuses to install from original iso (which is understandable) and links to non-existing MATLAB Answer:
Text: The specified folder has R2018b Update 1 installed. To add products to this installation, see this MATLAB Answer.

The bugs in the R2018b Update 1 installer potentially lead to corrupted MATLAB configurations.
@Walter you are actually quite right. This doesn't happen on R2018a Update 6, for instance.
Which raises a very different kind of issue. If MATLAB installation is at some update level, installing additional toolboxes from original iso may (and most definitely will) lead to inconsistent state of installation (e.g. older libraries/files mixed with newer ones).
As of R2018a, installer doesn't warn you about this nor it errors out.
As of R2018b... We don't know yet what is going to happen, since no update has been officially rolled out.
I would tend to think that when you go to install from ISO, if you agree to have the installer check for newer versions, that it will detect the updates. But I do not know that for sure as I have only installed a couple of Update * and was not paying attention to this factor.
