Problems with File Downloads?

JMP license files are small text files, downloaded via NetFiles. NetFiles requires login with your University of Minnesota internetID and password.

Within Netfiles, find and download the file with a filename that starts with JMP902_ or JMP10_. Save it to your desktop or somewhere where it will be easy to find. You may need to right-click (Win) or control-click (Mac) on the filename and select "Save to Desktop". If you are asked if you want to open or save, select save.

To Apply the New License

Starting 11/16/2013, JMP users who have not updated license files will see a message "Your JMP License Has Expired". If the date is beyond 11/16/2013 and you do not see such a warning, your license has already been updated, and you do not need to do anything else.

If the license has already expired:
1. Start JMP
2. select "Open License" on the expiration warning screen.
3. At the prompt, navigate to the SID file (license file) that you saved above.

If your license has not yet expired:
1. Start JMP
2. From the File menu, select New > Script to open a script window.
3. Enter this line: renew license();
4. From the Edit menu, select Run Script.
5. In the resulting Renew Your JMP License window, click Open License.
6. At the prompt, navigate to the SID file (license file) that you saved above.


File Installation Key (FIK) for MATLAB 2014a


MATLAB ISO installation media (ISO files)

License File

Download the license file:
This license file is needed during installation. Download it before you start installation, and save it somewhere where you can easily find it during installation.

The License File and ISO installation media are both downloaded via NetFiles, which requires login with your U of M internet ID and password.

Install MATLAB

From the MATLAB ISO file you downloaded, create a DVD and insert it, or mount the ISO image directly. If installation does not start automatically, navigate through the DVD to find the apppropriate file to launch installation for your operating system.

For installation method, select "Use a File Installation Key".

An internet connection is not needed during this installation method. However, an internet connection on campus or VPN is still needed to run MATLAB.

See this guide for more details for either installation method:
