I am trying to compile models into a .dll in order use for HIL simulation, but MATLAB shows en error when I attempt to build the file. I have the correct System Target File selected, the Solver is selected as Fixed-Step Discrete, and I ran the mex -setup to select the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express compiler on my PC. Once I attempt to build, I get the following:

I also noticed I get a similar statement when running mex -setup:

Welcome to mex -setup. This utility will help you set up a default compiler.

Please choose your compiler for building MEX-files:

Would you like mex to locate installed compilers [y]/n?

What should I do next to fix this issue? Thanks

Hi Jacob,

It looks like the generated make file is having issues because of the space in the path C:\Program Files. It is trying to run the line:

 C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2011a\sys\perl\win32\bin\perl 

which is being interpreted by the OS as the command:

 C:\Program

This issue is described with workarounds here:

http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/95399-why-is-the-build-process-failing-for-a-shipped-model-in-simulink-v8-1-r2013a

The ideas are to either change the Windows registry so it uses short pathnames which will remove the space or to re-install MATLAB in a directory without spaces.

Thanks for the help Ryan. I was unable to fix it by following SOLUTION 1, hence I went ahead with SOLUTION 2 and reinstalled MATLAB into a folder on the C: drive with a name that did not contain blank spaces. Following this instruction I was able to solve this issue, but unfortunately encountered another error related to the compiler (which will be posted as a seperate discussion). Onto the next one!

Thanks again!
