I installed 2104a and Financial Toolbox, but later my laptop was broken and repaired as a new one. When I re-downloaded my MATLAB, I found 2014b was available and installed it. But after installation I found no Financial Toolbox is there though 2014b worked well, so I uninstalled it and re-installed 2014a. In installation, I see Financial Toolbox is on the list, and the installation is successful. But when I try to open MATLAB, I get the error as attached.
My laptop is Mac and the system is Yosemite.

In R2014a, this can be resolved using MathWorks patch that can be found here:
However the link mentions that the issue has been resolved in R2014b. So I'd retry R2014b installation. Check your MathWorks account to see if you have the toolbox available. It will resolve this issue and you'll have access to new features as well.

Thank you very much! It works. I am satisfied even though it only makes 2014a work.
