Action ValueDescription


Checks the integrity of the current installation. If this function reports an error, you should reinstall the Simulink 3D Animation software. The function vrinstall automatically does a self-test with any other actions.


Checks for the installed components, and then displays a list of uninstalled components you can choose to install.


Checks the installation of optional components. If the given component is installed, returns 1. If the given component is not installed, returns 0. If you do not specify a component, displays a list of components and their status.


Installs optional components. This action requires you to specify the component name. All components can be installed using this command, but some of them (currently only the plug-in) need to be uninstalled using the system standard uninstallation procedure.


Uninstalls optional components. This option is currently available for the editor only. Note that this action does not remove the files for the editor from the installation folder. It removes the editor registry information.

If you want to uninstall the VRML plug-in, exit the MATLAB® software and, from the Control Panel window, select Add/Remove Programs.


Install the VRML editor. This command associates V-Realm Builder with the Edit button in the Block Parameters dialog boxes.
