*From Doug:

[[SIMULINK doesn't run| FAQ: SIMULINK doesn't run]]-->
Note that last year there were a number of problems with students getting the MATLAB license installed, but not noting the separate licensing step for SIMULINK.  Caltech has 75 (FA08) SIMULINK licenses, and practically infinite MATLAB licenses, but once you use a given Toolbox or SIMULINK, I don’t think MATLAB returns the license for that until it exits(?)  So, it is easy to tie up SIMULINK licenses by not exiting.

*From Max:

If you are still having problems, I have a strong suspicion that it has nothing to do with the number of licenses Caltech has.  Before you try anything else, go to software.caltech.edu and go back to your downloads. Click on MATLAB as if you were going to download it and then when you get to the screen where you can actually download the software there should be a link that says 'Click for installation instructions'.  This page has instructions on how you need to update your 'network.lic' file in MATLAB source folder.
