Standalone executable GUI calling Simulink

5 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I am attempting to make a standalone executable GUI which calls a Simulink model. I found an appropriate method listed on:
Using the above link, I am able to create the exe file but am unable to run it without MATLAB. Do I need to do any more things so as to run the executable on a system without MATLAB?
Thanks for your time.

Checking further, you can call sim() from within MATLAB -- but you need to use the product "Simulink Compiler",
The post at hints that you would get a Simulink.standalone_sim error if you tried to use MATLAB Compiler.

You would need to install the MCR on machines without MATLAB (MCR: Matlab Runtime)
The MCR is avalable with the MATLAB Compiler product.

Thanks for your answer. So can I package the MCR by using deploytool just as I package it for the m-file based GUIs?

Yes! MCR can be packaged with deploytool

I just now tried doing it through the deploytool but it is not working. Please note that in the link I posted above, the GUI is calling a calling a Simulink exe (and not an mfile).
Finally, when I use deploytool--->set the GUI mfile as the main function---> but all ctf, exe,mdl etc files in the Other Files tab---> put all C files in 'C Files tab'---> then on Build, the generated exe doesnt work even while testing( and ofcourse doesnt work after packaging too)!!
