Hello all,
I am trying to run a standalone application (.exe) on a computer which doesn't have matlab. I have installed matlab compiler runtime on my computer which has matlab. Now I want to deploy the standalone application to other computers which doesn't have matlab. I have used the deploy tool, but i am not sure how to deploy the whole package to other computers including Matlab compiler runtime.
can anyone please help me out.
Thank you.

The deploy tool creates a self-extracting archive, and I believe (but am not sure) that MCR comes in the form of a self-extracting archive as well. Copy both to the new machine, install MCR, run the self-extracting archive which is the application, run the application, watch it crash, go back to the original machine and try to figure out why. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Keep a bookmark for -- you are going to need it.

In deploytool, you should see a tab called "Package". There, you can include the MCR and package it (by clicking on the package button in the toolbar). That would create a single installer file which you can run on the other computers.

You need to get that MCR version from the person who build the application. MCR 7.16 was the last MCR under the older license that did not allow MCR to be easily downloaded.
