Your attention is drawn to the terms and conditions of the Software License Agreement (in file lic_agr.txt) regarding the use of NAG software. Any request to use this software other than on the licensed computer must be referred to NAG, as should requests for information about the availability of other implementations.
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: x86-64 systems and compatible operating system: Microsoft Windows MATLAB version: 64-bit: 8.5 (R2015a), 8.5.1 (R2015aSP1), 8.6 (R2015b), 9.0 (R2016a)
The user needs to have MATLAB installed. This implementation may work with later versions of MATLAB. More details may be available on the supplementary information page (see Section 2.3).
Note that this implementation will not work with 32-bit versions of MATLAB; please use an appropriate 32-bit NAG Toolbox instead.
For compatibility with MATLAB, this implementation uses 64-bit integers.

By default these files are installed under
You must have Administrator privileges to install this software.
Assuming you have downloaded the toolbox materials from our website, run the self-extracting executable (mbw6i25ddl_setup.exe) to start the installation.
Note that we recommend that you install a separate instance of the toolbox for each version of MATLAB that you wish to use it with. However, if you install a new release of MATLAB and wish to use an existing installation of the toolbox with it, then this is possible by following the instructions in Section 4.1.1.
After installation, you should ensure that the software described in Section 3.1 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. If this does not work correctly and you see messages such as "The referenced assembly is not installed on your system." then it may be necessary to reboot your computer so that MATLAB picks up the correct support libraries.
To test that a valid license is available, type a00ac at the MATLAB prompt. This will return 1 if a valid license is found, or 0 otherwise.
This software is provided with an uninstallation facility via
Control Panel|Programs|Uninstall a Programor
Control Panel|Programs and Features|Uninstall or change a program(depending on which view is displayed).
Running the setup program again will allow you to install another instance of the toolbox to a different location (e.g. for use with a different release of MATLAB).
If you choose to have your MATLAB path updated during installation,
the file toolbox\local\pathdef.m in your MATLAB installation
will be modified. If you
choose not to have your path modified, or you wish to use an existing
toolbox installation with a new installation of MATLAB, then there are a
number of ways
by which this may be done by hand. The easiest is to use the Set
Path button on the MATLAB GUI, but if you search for "matlab path" in
online help system you will find pointers to several others.
If updating by hand then it is essential to ensure that the folder
containing the help files appears after that containing the executable files.
For example, if you installed the toolbox under
mbw6i25ddl_setup.exe /VERYSILENTfrom a Command Prompt. With the first version, the user sees what is happening on the screen as the installation procedure progresses, whereas with the second, nothing is displayed. The files will be installed to the default location and the MATLAB path file (pathdef.m) for the most recent version of MATLAB found will be modified. The default location may be overridden by using the /DIR flag, e.g.
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. For evaluation purposes a trial license may be used. To get a trial license contact the NAG Response Centre. Before obtaining a full license you need to know the Kusari hostid of the system on which you intend to use this product and how to do this is described below.
The easiest way to request a license key is to use the GUI described in the next section. Once you have a key, the same GUI can be used to install it.
The information below covers the most common requirements. For more complex licensing situations, please contact us.
Once you have your license key, the same GUI can be used to install the key in the registry.
You can execute this GUI via the Start Menu/All apps shortcut NAG MBW6I25DDL Licence, Request or Install.
This GUI can also be run from the installation procedure.
On-line documentation, accessible via the standard MATLAB help facilities, is bundled with this implementation. Please see Section 3.1.
