I want to be able to run Matlab a m-file as an executable file (exe) in Windows, hence it is not needed to open Matlab. That means that I need to compile the corresponding Matlab m-file to an Windows executable file, therefore it is needed to compile the m-file to exe file. In addition, by having a compiled exe file, it can be used in other computers which have no Matlab installed.
The process of installing and using Matlab compiler is as follow;
Exit Matlab if it is running.
Install / Run: MCRInstaller.exe which is located in:
Start Matlab an issue the following command:
>> mbuild -setup (enter)
Please choose your compiler for building standalone MATLAB applications:
Would you like mbuild to locate installed compilers [y]/n? y
Select a compiler:
 Lcc-win32 C 2.4.1 in C:\PROGRA~1\MATLAB\R2008b\sys\lcc
(choose available compiler, in this case 1)
Please verify your choices:
Compiler: Lcc-win32 C 2.4.1
Are these correct [y]/n? y
Trying to update options file: D:\Documents and Settings\09871962\Application Data\MathWorks\MATLAB\R2008b\compopts.bat
From template: C:\PROGRA~1\MATLAB\R2008b\bin\win32\mbuildopts\lcccompp.bat
Done . . .
Now you can compile any Matlab m-files into a standalone exe files in Windows. For example, to compile m-file called
myfile, issue the following command:
>>mcc -m myfile.m (enter)
If there are no error, Matlab will generate myfile.exe and
return to its normal prompt >>.
Open Command Prompt and test run myfile.exe.
