Is it possible to open multiple sessions / instances of R2015b? This was a very convenient capability in R2014b.

A clean upgrade of the OS to "El Capitan" resolved the issue. Multiple instances are now provided. Perhaps the problem was caused by corruption of my Mavericks installation.

Hi Kent,
yes, that should still be possible. Has your license type changed? E.g. from an individual user license to a concurrent license? In this case you could run into problems starting multiple instances, since the concurrent license works differently (different users possible, but one instance per time).

I am currently running R2015b under group license, so perhaps I am out of luck. Curiously, I also run R2014b under the same license and Matlab generously permits multiple instances. For instance, I am currently running both R2014b and R2015b. Might I make arrangements with the group license administrator to run multiple R2015b sessions? I would love to write code and run scripts at the same time.

I must admit I'm not expert on licenses, but I'm pretty sure it's a licensing question not a technical problem ... Talking to your group license administrator is probably your best bet.

For other operating systems, you might need to do something so that clicking on the icon does not just bring you back to the same session. I am not familiar enough with those operating systems to suggest the mechanism.
