Alternatively, contact your IT Department for instructions on how to link to an available license.
If your MathWorks Account is already linked to a license eligible for the release of MATLAB you are attempting to use, locally stored license information on your computer may be corrupted. Perform the following steps to regenerate the license information:
1. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet
2. Remove the .mwlicx file
Linux: /home/$USER/.MathWorks/licensing/licenses/
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MathWorks/licensing/licenses/
3. Restart MATLAB
