Does enyone know what is going on?
what version of matlab are you trying to install. Version before 2009a seem to have a known issue with Java in windows 7.
If you are installing a version earlier than 2009a then follow these steps:
1. change your theme to basic (without aero).
2. Install the latest java
3. rename the folder
program files->matlab-> YOUR VERSION OF MATLAB->sys->java->
jre->win32->jre18.104.22.168 to original_jre22.214.171.124
4. go to program files->java copy jre6 and paste in the matlab folder in win32. rename this folder to jre126.96.36.199
Let me know if this works
