When I use loadlibrary.m function in parallel computations, for example using parameterSweep.m function from Algorithmic Trading 2010 Webinar, it tells me:
??? Error using ==> parallel_function at 598 Error in ==> loadlibrary at 264 A 'Selected' compiler was not found. You may need to run mex -setup.
But I've ran mex -setup, and have chosen Lcc and also've tried Visual C++ 2005, 2008, Open WATCOM C++, other compilers, but an error is the same...
Without using function 'matlabpool open ...' it works well, in R2010b it also works well in all cases. What's wrong with R2011a? How to fix it? Do you have any sugestions, please?
It sounds like the cluster is attempting to invoke a compiler to support loadlibrary, but no compiler has been set up on the cluster. This probably isn’t the best way to go about this anyhow. I would try the following:
This will avoid the need for a compiler on the cluster and should be sufficient for your needs. You’ll need to ensure that the DLL you are loading, as well at the generated MATLAB file (and thunk file on win64 – see the doc for loadlibrary) are visible to your cluster. You may get this “for free” if you have a shared filesystem between the cluster and client; otherwise, you may need to marshal those files to the cluster using PCT’s configuration manager.
All of this assumes the cluster is running the same platform (win32?) as your client machine. If the cluster is something else, this approach won’t work.
