I am trying to use Microsoft Visual C++ .Net 2003 7.1 with the MATLAB Compiler; however, the option file for this compiler is not available. The Microsoft Visual C++ .Net 2003 7.1 is the updated C/C++ compiler for the .NET platform.
The Microsoft Visual C++ .Net 2003 7.1 compiler is not officially supported by MATLAB 6.5.1 (R13SP1). However, we do have a patch that will allow you to use MSVC 7.1 with MATLAB and the MATLAB Compiler. This patch is attached below.
Use the following steps to install the patch:
1. Copy the self extracting patch in the root MATLAB directory, which is given by issuing the MATLABROOT command at the MATLAB command prompt. This patch has 2 updated files and 5 new files.
2. Rename the following files:
Rename the files to $FILENAME.EXT.old where $FILENAME.EXT is the original filename and extension.
3. Run the patch to extract the updated files. The new files and their destination locations are as follows:
The first 3 files mentioned in the above list will provide support for MEX and MATLAB Engine applications. The last 2 files will provide support for the MATLAB Compiler. The self-extracting patch will put the files in their appropriate locations.
4. Run "mbuild -setup" and "mex -setup"
