A Personal License Passcode (PLP) is a unique string of numbers that enables the installation of MATLAB R2007b and earlier on a Windows machine.
Beginning with R2008a, PLPs are no longer used to install MATLAB. MATLAB installation is now achieved by signing into the MATLAB installer. For more information about installing MATLAB R2008a and later, please see the MATLAB documentation:
If you need to install R2007b or older you still must obtain a PLP. Contact MathWorks Support to obtain a PLP. Please note that PLP requests can only be submitted by a license administrator.

yara sbaihat: PLP was a form of installation authorization password that was used in the past. The closest to that which exists in current versions is a File Installation Key.

The historical records show that,
The universal MATLAB 6.0 PLP license key was 42 .
The universal MATLAB 6.5 PLP license key was 43 .
For Matlab 7.x, they changed the universal license system.
The universal MATLAB 7.0 PLP license key was "Great Green Arkleseizure".
The universal MATLAB 7.1 PLP license key was "ZZ9 plural Z alpha".
The scheme may have expired by now.
