Configure target computer and real-time application for execution (not recommended)
xpcexplr at the MATLAB® command
prompt opens Simulink® Real-Time™ Explorer.
From within Simulink Real-Time Explorer, you can export a session as a standalone executable that runs without MATLAB.
When you run Simulink Real-Time Explorer from within MATLAB, you have available the full capabilities of Simulink Real-Time Explorer. When you run it as a standalone executable, you have available a subset of the capabilities of Simulink Real-Time Explorer.

When you run Simulink Real-Time Explorer as a standalone executable, it has the following restrictions:
You cannot change the communication parameters that the interface uses to communicate with the target computer. Before you export the Simulink Real-Time Explorer configuration, configure and test the communication parameters.
To access more than one target computer, in the Targets window, configure a separate Session record for each target computer.
For each instrument, the exporting software records the real-time application and target computer environment with which it is associated. To interact with multiple target computers, create separate instrument panels for each separate real-time application and target computer combination.
If you rename a target computer, update the TargetName parameter for each associated instrument to maintain the connection to the real-time application.
You cannot load or unload a real-time application from the standalone executable. Before you start the executable, start the real-time application on the target computer.
You can access only instrument panels and windows that you loaded before you exported the configuration.
You cannot access the real-time application model hierarchy from the standalone executable.
You can access only signals in signal groups that you loaded before you exported the configuration.
You cannot move a signal from one signal group to another group, or create or load a new signal group.
You can access only parameters in parameter groups that you loaded before you exported the configuration.
You cannot move a parameter from one parameter group to another group, or create or load a new parameter group.
You cannot save session layouts. If you close a window, you can restore the original layout using File > Restore Original View.
