If you are having any problem running Matlab 7.0 in your Windows 7 installation, both 32 bits and 64 bits, follow these simple steps.

- Go to the Matlab icon, right click and go to Properties.

- Click the Compatibility tab and select “Windows 2000” from the drop down in the Compatibility group. Click “OK” and you are done. Simple it is.

Now run the Matlab program, it should run without any problem. CHEERs.

Thank you very much for posting this, am an electrical engineering student too n this solves just 1 of my problems.

Before i applied this neat trick, matlab 7 wasn’t even opening on my manchine, now it opens n i get to see it briefly about 2 seconds then it closes itself.

Am on an X64 AMD machine n i think that is the problem. Could you know of a work around to this?

I’ll appreciate any help

YES , THE COMPATIBILITY CHANGE TO WINDOWS 2000 OR WINDOWS VISTA (SERVICE PACK 2) WHEN RUN UNDER WINDOWS 7 INSTALLS THE REQUIRED RUN TIME LIBRARIES WHICH TAKES SEVERAL MINUTES .

WHETHER THIS PROCESS/PROCEDURE HAS TO BE DONE WITH OR WITHOUT INTERNET CONNECTION?

THESE R THE TWO ISSUES WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO BE SOLVED . PLS REPLY ME AS TO THE TWO ISSUES(COMPATIBILITY)

ONE: INSTALLING REQUIRED RUN TIME LIBRARIES(HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?)

TWO: INSTALLATION TO BE DONE WITH OR WITHOUT INTERNET CONNECTION?

THANKS
