If you have a valid Matlab license, you should be able to download the linux version of Matlab from their homepage. – Jonas Nov 24 '11 at 21:06

A file ending with '.exe' is aimed for the Windows operating system. It will never run natively on any flavor of Linux. You need to get the Linux binaries of MATLAB.

Your may check System Requirements - Release 2011b for further information. Apart from the Solaris support, there hasn't been much change since 2009a.
