Obtaining prior updates for MATLAB Compiler Runtime
The release and updates of older versions can be specified in the URL. To obtain an earlier update version of the MATLAB Compiler Runtime:
  1. Navigate to the MATLAB Compiler Runtime page: https://www.mathworks.com/products/compiler/matlab-runtime.html
  2. Right-click on the R20XXx 64-bit link under the appropriate OS and select "Copy Link Address"
  3. Copy the address into a web browser and then replace the existing update number/release with the desired update/release in both places of the web address. For example:
downloads/R2019a/Release/3/deployment_files/installer/complete/win64/MATLAB_Runtime_R2019b_Update_3_win64.zip
This should allow you to download the specific update version of MATLAB Compiler Runtime.
Obtaining general release (without update) of MATLAB Compiler Runtime 
  1. Navigate to the MATLAB Compiler Runtime page: https://www.mathworks.com/products/compiler/matlab-runtime.html
  2. Right-click on the R20XXx 64-bit link under the appropriate OS and select "Copy Link Address"
  3. Copy the address into a web browser and then replace the existing update number/release with the 0 (zero) and remove _Update_X from the file name from the web address. For example:
downloads/R2019b/Release/0/deployment_files/installer/complete/win64/MATLAB_Runtime_R2019b_win64.zip
This should allow you to download the general release (without update) of MATLAB Compiler Runtime.
 
For releases of MATLAB Compiler Runtime that are not available online: 
Please check to see if the version of MATLAB Compiler Runtime you need to use is available on the following website.
For situations where the release of the MATLAB Compiler Runtime is not available on our website, and you do not have a license for MATLAB Compiler, please contact the author of the compiled component you try to run. They should have access to the MCR installer which they can share with you.
In case you have a license for MATLAB Compiler, please refer to the below table to find out which MATLAB version comes with the MCR version that you need.

For releases R2017b and earlier, once you know the version of MATLAB, please install that version of MATLAB plus MATLAB Compiler.
Now open that version of MATLAB  and type 'mcrinstaller' on the command window.
>> mcrinstaller
This will display a full path as the output, for example:
'C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2014a\toolbox\compiler\deploy\win64\MCRInstaller.exe'
Go to the required directory and you will find the specific MCR. Install that MCR and try running your existing deployed application.
If you need to install MATLAB Compiler Runtime for R2018a or newer, please see the following article:
