I have recently installed matlab 2013a onto a new computer that is running windows 8.
Whenever I try to set the mex complier (using visual studios 2012 ultimate) with the command mex -setup a window appears saying "Perl Command Line Interpreter has stopped working". When I close the window a message in matalb appears saying
Error using mex (line 206) Unable to complete successfully.
I can't seem to find anyone with the same error and am at a loss as to how to fix it
Found a solution. Trying some other functions it became clear the perl interpreter was crashing every time it was run. I downloaded a new perl version (strawberry perl) and replaced the perl.exe in MATLAB\R2013a\sys\perl\win32\bin with it.
