Has anyone successfully run Matlab 2012b on Mac OS X Mavericks? I am wondering if I need to upgrade my OS X now since it looks nice. Thanks.

The student version 2013a is not running after upgrading my OS to 10.9.

I did everything that is suggested above. However when is typed in my serial number Matworks came back saying that the maximum number of authorized computers is exceeded and I can't go any further. On the earlier Mac OS versions I installed and used Matlab 7 as a single user on a single iMac

I'm trying to install 2012b on OS 10.9 but get an error: "a valid host ID cannot be detected on this computer". I can manually find the host ID in Terminal so I know it has one but Matlab can't "see" it. Any suggestions?

The system requirements page have not yet been updated, but we have validated R2013a and R2013b only. That said, I expect R2012b will run fine.

You may need to re-install Java 6 after updating. I am under the impression that OS X will prompt you do to this when you try to start MATLAB.
It's not really a downgrade in a literal sense, since Java 6 and Java 7 can peacefully co-exist on the same Mac.

R2012b is running fine for me. However, when trying to install R2013b I get the following error:
“” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.
Any ideas what that means?
