Starting the AddOn Manager from the command line

32 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to write some routines to assist users with automatically updating software. It would be helpful if I could run a command that would open the AddOn Manager but so far I can't find one. Does one exist?

I am looking for a command to load the Add On Manager GUI rather than run the update on my software. The reason is that the user might want to explore what the changes are before comitting themselves.

The Production Server is an optional toolbox. I can't assume my users will have it so it's not a solution, sadly.
The "pathtool" command opens the GUI for modifying the MATLAB path. Is there no command to open the already built-in Addon Manager GUI?

I've just run across the Matlab Package Manager, though I'm not sure it would be helpful for your case either.
