Hi,
I have Matlab 2019b on my computer and cannot run my old codes on this version and I need to insatll older version like Matlab 7.04 (R14SP2) . I have windows 10 on my compuer and when I try to insatll Matlab 7.04 (R14SP2) it says my PLP has exired. This is probably a compatbility ussue with windows 10. Does anyone know if there is a work around this?

Mathworks Support can create PLP for existing permanent licenses; your R2019b license entitles you to run R14SP2 on the same machine.
PLP are machine-specific so you would need a new PLP to install onto a different machine.
The automated license system is not able to generate PLP; you need Support for that.

Running release R14SP2 (which was released in March 2005) on Windows 10 (released in July 2015, over ten years later) is not a supported configuration so it may or may not work.
According to the system requirements the Microsoft Windows operating systems on which running it is supported are 32-bit Windows XP (service packs 1 or 2), Windows 2000 (service packs 3 or 4), Windows 2003 Server, or Windows NT 4.0 (service packs 5 or 6a.)
I'm curious about your statement that your older codes won't work on the newer release. Can you provide a few more details about what happened when you tried? Did you receive errors? They may have straightforward solutions.

That doesn't look like the full text of the error message. Can you show all the text displayed in red, especially the part prior to the "Error in matlab.graphics.internal.figfile.FigFile/read (line 31)" line?
As for the P-code file, get the plain .m file that was used to generate the P-coded file initially and call pcode on it.

Unable to read MAT-file analysis.m. Not a binary MAT-file. Try load -ASCII to read as text.

fig = openfig(mfilename,'new');
change that to
[mydir, myname, ~] = fileparts(mfilename);
figfile = fullfile(mydir, [myname, '.fig']);
fig = openfig(figfile);
