    Unable to run Matlab 7

    Unable to run Matlab 7
    i'm unable to use matlab 7 on Windows XP SP2 now. when i run the matlab program the flash screen appears and disappears but nothing happens(no
    workspace). it was working when i last used it a couple of months ago.even the m file editor and un-install programs do not run now.

    i tried re-installing by running the setup file from the cd. but again the flash screen appears and then disappears and no further installation options appear. i deleted the entire matlab folder and i still can't re-install.

    the only major change i've made to my comp since matlab last worked is the 1) installed SP2 2)stopped some of the services running on system to make it
    run faster. i'd appreciate ur suggestions. thanks in advance.

    I had a similar problem after upgrading to SP2 (couldn't get to the workspace, unistaller didn't work, etc.) I had to go in and delete the entire matlab folder myself, then run the CD installer, after which matlab worked as it should.

    it could be that there is still registry entries accepts left over

    uninstall it and delete the folders
    use a reg cleaner to get rid of all the left over keys

    shut down and restart

    then reinstall

    try 16bit mode for the video system

    Re: Unable to run Matlab 7

    hello, I only recently installed Matlab, what u need to do is to first check to see that ur system has the capability , i mean in terms of memory 'n all to run d software. u might want to uninstall the previous version first.
