I have a persistent problem across the different MATLAB versions (R2012a and R2012b, 32 bit) which is related to a compilation of a code containing "web url -browser" line. The line works perfectly fine on the MATLAB software but when compiled into an exe file, the following error pops out:

Undefined variable "helpUtils" or class "helpUtils.removeDotsFromFilePath".
Error in web (line 125)

What I am trying to display is a local folder in the browser. I tried many options:
web url -browser
web url
web (url, '-browser')
web(['file:///' url])
where url is the path to a specific folder on the local disk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
