2) Start a new Matlab session (without starting FEATool if you have another version installed as a toolbox).

3) Change to the extracted build directory:

    >> cd('path_to_extracted_build_directory')

4) Launch FEATool by simply typing "featool" at the Matlab command line:

    >> featool

5) You can verify that you are running the current alpha build by selecting the "About FEATool..." option from the "Help" menu. This should result in a message which says:

    "FEATool Multiphysics Version 1.11.5"
