Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 set up as default C and C++ compiler in Matlab 2021a

189 views (last 30 days)
That´s my need. It´s installed but Matlab doesn´t know that it is.
if I put: mex -setup, Microsoft visual studio doesn´t appear.
Thank you very much for helping!
What must I do in order to set Visual Studio as the Matlab C and C++ Compiler?
My default Compiler now is mingw64-g++ but I want to generate an audio plugin and it can´t be compiled, this is the message:
"Error using generateAudioPlugin
Toolchain 'MinGW64 Compiler (C++)' is not supported for generating audio plug-ins. Use one
of the following:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2017
Microsoft Visual C++ 2015."
Visual C++ is already installed in my desktop but how can I integrate it to MATLAB in order to be the compiler in use with it?

Plugin generation is part of the Audio Toolbox, which does not support MinGW. For plugins:
  • VS 2019 was added to R2019b (appears to be missing from the error message).
  • VS 2022 is planned for R2022a update 1. This and other releases subject to change.
For the latest, check the supported compilers page, including the link in the top right corner for previous releases.

This was added in R2021B Update 3. Not sure if R2021A will ever get this update. VS 2022 was release only very recently.
