Your attention is drawn to the terms and conditions of the Software License Agreement regarding the use of NAG software.
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Toolbox for MATLAB that is considered suitable for use on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Apple Intel Mac 64-bit operating system: OS X 10.7 and compatible MATLAB Version: 64-bit: 8.1 (R2013a), 8.2 (R2013b), 8.3 (R2014a) 8.4 (R2014b)
The system must have MATLAB installed. This product has been tested on the versions of MATLAB shown above and may work on later releases. More details may be available on the post release page (see Section 2.3).
Due to changes in the MATLAB graphics system in release R2014b, some of the examples and demos shipped with this implementation (e.g. the Minimization (e04uc) demo) do not work correctly on that version of MATLAB.

If you received the product on CD then simply insert it in your CD drive and, if necessary, mount the CD device (normally this will happen automatically). This will contain the same files as the .dmg file above.
To install the NAG Toolbox for MATLAB software, double click on toolbox_installer.jar and follow the instructions.
You will be able to choose the location under which the NAG Toolbox for MATLAB is installed.
Note that to install to the default location or for the installer to automatically update your MATLAB path and MATLAB startup script, you will need administrator privileges.
If you choose not to allow the installer to update your MATLAB path, you will have to make the changes manually.
After installation, you should ensure that the software described in Section 4.1 is present and accessible.
You should access the toolbox documentation as follows. On starting the MATLAB documentation browser you should see a link labelled Supplemental Software. Clicking on that should open a browser with the entry NAG Toolbox in the Contents list.
A quick test that the software has been correctly installed is to type a00aa at the MATLAB prompt, which should print some implementation details.
The installer will detect the MATLAB versions installed in the default location (i.e. /Applications/) and one of them may be selected so that its path and script can be updated. Leave the MATLAB version unselected if you do not have sufficient privileges (via sudo or otherwise) to modify files within the MATLAB hierarchy or if you do not want this to be done automatically.
If the MATLAB path is updated during installation, the file toolbox/local/pathdef.m within the chosen MATLAB hierarchy will be modified and will have the lines:
'[install_dir]/mbmi624ddl/toolbox/NAG/mex.maci64:', ... '[install_dir]/mbmi624ddl/help/toolbox/NAG:', ...inserted. If you install a newer compatible version of MATLAB after installing the NAG Toolbox for MATLAB you may choose to reinstall the NAG Toolbox for this version.
If you choose not to have your path modified then there are a number of ways by which this may be done by hand. Search for "matlab path" in the MATLAB online help system for one method, and for pointers to several others. If updating by hand then it is essential to ensure that the directory containing the help files appears after that containing the executable files.
If your MATLAB script is modified during installation, the file bin/matlab in the MATLAB distribution will have the lines:
# BEGIN NAG Toolbox Installation Modifications DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=[install_dir]/mbmi624ddl/toolbox/NAG/mex.maci64:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH # END NAG Toolbox Installation Modificationsadded to it. If you decide to modify your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH by hand then a good approach is to edit the definition of LDPATH_PREFIX in the .matlab7rc.sh file. The main reason that this is not the approach taken by the installation script is that MATLAB allows a user to override the system-wide version with his/her own
cd [install_dir] sudo cp mbmi624ddl/UNINSTALL.maci64 . sudo ./UNINSTALL.maci64 sudo rm UNINSTALL.maci64(It may not be necessary to copy the UNINSTALL.maci64 file up a level, depending on privileges, etc.) This will remove the NAG toolbox and will restore your MATLAB path and MATLAB script (if they were modified automatically).
Alternatively, you may either drag the [install_dir]/mbmi624ddl directory to the trash or from the Finder menu choose "Move to Trash" and then select "Empty Trash" from the Finder menu. Using this method, you will need to modify your MATLAB path and MATLAB script to remove references to the NAG Toolbox yourself.
In order to enable the software, NAG will issue you with a license key. The license key is a simple text file containing details of the software that will be enabled.
A short term (demonstration or trial) license key contains one or more lines like the following:
MBMI624DD TRIAL 2014/12/28 "EMnxidA3oeoj0F1Yvi5ibxPjB7"Specifically, it has a line containing the word TRIAL. Longer term license keys must be locked to a specific computer, i.e. they will enable the software on one computer only. These license keys include the word NODE instead of the word TRIAL above.
License key request and installation is performed through the license installer (license_installer.jar). The NAG Toolbox for MATLAB Installer will launch the license installer after installing the toolbox and you will be prompted for a license key. If you do not have a license key, choose the option to generate a request form, which you can complete and send to NAG via e-mail.
Once you have obtained one of the above license keys you can enter it into the license installer (license_installer.jar). If you are an administrator, the license installer will try to save the license key in /opt/NAG/nag.key (prepending to the file if it already exists) by default. Otherwise, it will be installed in ~/nag.key but this will only be accessible for the current user. The toolbox will then validate the license at runtime.
If you need to update or change the license key after installation, we recommend that you run the license installer again.
Further details about Kusari and how it may be configured to suit your local circumstances (e.g. how to install the license key on a server) are included in the Kusari License Management documentation available from http://www.nag.co.uk/Kusari/download.asp.

On-line documentation, accessible via the standard MATLAB help facilities, is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 4.
The NAG Technical Support Service is available for general enquiries from all users and also for technical queries from sites with an annually licensed product or support service.
The technical support desks are open during office hours, but contact is possible by email and phone (answering machine) at all times.
When contacting us, it helps us deal with your enquiry quickly if you can quote your NAG customer reference number and NAG product code (in this case MBMI624DDL).
