Matlab R2007a on Thinkpad Windows 7

2009-11-06, 22:42 PM

Okay, I just upgraded to Windows 7 and found my Matlab R2007a stop working. So this is what I did:
First:
To install Matlab 2007 on windows 7
1-Change Windows 7 Theme to the classic one (windows classic)
2-now the Matlab install will work correctly

Second:

To use Matlab with other windows 7 themes you have to change java used by matlab.
1- download JRE 1.5.0_19 or JRE 1.5.0_20 java version and install it.

2- go to  C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007a\sys\java\jre\win32 you will

find a file named jer1.5.0_07 rename it to Original_jer1.5.0_07
3- go to C:\Program Files\Java you will find file named JRE 1.5.0_19 or JRE 1.5.0_20 , copy it to C:\Program
Files\MATLAB\R2007a\sys\java\jre\win32   and rename it to jer1.5.0_07
Now you can use matlab with all themes with help.

Also note that Matlab 2007 (a or b) doesn't support symbolic math if you install the x64-version of it. If you're running 64-bit Windows then you need to start Matlab-installation from 32-bit folder from your disc, otherwise it will automatically install 64-bit version. This is really unbelievable stupid that they didn't add symbolic support for 64-bit Matlab 2007.
