MATLAB COM Support Limitations

Microsoft® does not support loading 32-bit DLLs or in-process COM servers into a 64-bit application, or vice-versa. So you cannot use 32-bit DLL COM objects in 64-bit MATLAB®.

Limitations of MATLAB COM support are:

  • MATLAB does not support custom COM interfaces (IUnknown) with 64-bit MATLAB.

  • MATLAB only supports indexed collections.

  • COM controls are not printed with figure windows.

  • Unsupported Types

  • MATLAB does not support asynchronous events.

  • A MATLAB COM ActiveX® control container does not in-place activate controls until they are visible.
