My comupter installed both Matlab runtime and Matlab(R) Comiler Runtime. See following picture. What's the difference between those two softwares?
The purpose for those two softwares is to do some calculation in excel file, but some function need support from Matlab.

The 7.14 software is for applications compiled with r2010b


Thanks for your answer at first.
The VBA program in excel file need to call some Matlab function. But why do I need two matlab programs? what's the real difference between two matlab programs?
MATLAB Compiled executables and generated libraries need a run time library that is specific to the MATLAB version they were compiled with. It is not possible to use the run time library for 2015b to run a program compiled with r2010b.
The two files you see serve the same purpose for different matlab versions. They changed the naming convention at some point from internal version numbers to matlab release names but they are the same purpose for different releases. Also it would not surprise me if the 7.14 one is for 32 bit r2010b programs; the other one is for 64 bit R2015b
