To resolve issues starting MATLAB on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) visit: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/159016
Can someone point me to the description of any restrictions on distributing MATLAB Engine applications (source code an binaries)? Can compiled binaries be legally distributed?
(Note that in order to run engine applications, one must already have a licensed copy of MATLAB installed. The question is only about distributing the engine application binaries, not MATLAB.)
If you compiled your code then you can distribute it, though I think your compiled binary application (a standalone executable I assume) will still need MCR run time library installed even though your users would have the full blown MATLAB installed.
