MATLAB in Mountain Lion

What do you have to do to install MATLAB 2012b in Mountain Lion? I instaled quartz (which I guess is the new version of X11), but when I download the installer from I just get a download_agent file. If I try to open it I get an error

"The document download_agent" could not be opened. Dashcode can not open files in the "data" format.

According to this article
http://www.mathworks.com/support/sol...data/1-IXBVKD/
X11 is not required for MATLAB R2012b

Maybe this page will help you - http://quantumtunnel.wordpress.com/2...n-without-x11/

Have you tried simply logging out of your user, then logging back in, or just restarting your Mac, then try the MATLAB installer again?

Good...
What did MATLAB support at Mathworks tell you?
Did you post your question at the MATLAB central? http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/

Did you check in your Console for any relevant messages?
I _think_ that MATLAB needs Java, but I'm not sure. Mountain Lion does not have Java installed by default. Do you need to install that first?
