 Subject: Warning: Name is nonexistent or not a directory: C:\Program From: Ulrich Date: 4 Mar, 2009 09:01:01 Message: 1 of 4 When I am trying to compile a matlab source with >mcc I get: Warning: Name is nonexistent or not a directory: C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2008b\toolbox\compiler\patch. Warning: Name is nonexistent or not a directory: C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2008b\toolbox\compiler\patch. Depfun error: 'Unable to locate IOS2ID.m as a function on the MATLAB path' Warning: Name is nonexistent or not a directory: C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2008b\toolbox\compiler\patch. ??? Error using ==> mcc Error executing mcc, return status = 1. What to do to get it work??? My guess: Since many years of matlab development, it is not able to handle blanks inside path names! Tell me where to set this environment variable from C:\Program Files to the good old dos style PROGRA~1!

I had the same problem but creating empty folder 'C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2008b\toolbox\compiler\patch' fixed the problem.
