I'm looking for a portable solution to using matlab on any computer.I tried to install matlab on the hdd and found that it wouldn't work on other computers. What can I do to make it work? Is it even possible?

I think it is impossible. Just think that if Matlab developer allow this, then someone could create a flash drive with a licensed software and share to anyone to copy. Than anyone else would need to buy another license anymore. – Diogo Jun 5 '12 at 20:02
It is possible, but I think it is illegal... Try to use an existing portable free solution, like Scilab portable... – kokbira Aug 7 '12 at 18:50

Unless you are part of a large organization that can justify the cost of a concurrent licence, then no, it's not possible

A Concurrent license enables you to make MathWorks products available to anyone with access to your network
