Supported Compilers – Release 2011b

A number of MathWorks products or product features require that you have a third-party compiler installed on your system. The tables below outline the compilers that are supported by various MathWorks products. These compilers are provided by a number of vendors and are available under a variety of commercial, academic, or open source terms; visit the providers' Web sites for further information.



Windows (64-bit)

For the 64-bit Windows platform, a C compiler is not supplied with MATLAB. A free download is available that is suitable for most users:

For step-by-step installation instructions, see the following solution.

The complete set of supported compilers is described below.

Notes for the Windows (64-bit) Platform

  1. Both Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) 6.1 must be installed. When installing Microsoft Visual Studio, you must choose "X64 Compilers and Tools" when installing Microsoft Visual Studio; this is not selected by default.
  2. Intel compilers depend on tools provided by Microsoft. The following combinations are supported:

    Microsoft
    Visual Studio 2010
    Professional (64-bit)
    Microsoft
    Windows SDK 7.1
    Microsoft
    Visual Studio 2008 SP1
    Professional Edition (64-bit)
    Microsoft
    Visual Studio 2008
    Shell
    (64-bit)
    Intel C++ Composer XE 2011  
    Intel C++ 11.1      
    Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2011
    Intel Visual Fortran 11.1    
  3. Support for this version of this compiler will be discontinued in a future release, at which time a new version will be supported. Consult the platform road map for more information.
  4. To build .NET components, a Microsoft .NET Framework must be installed. The .NET Framework v3.0 does not contain a framework-specific compiler; compatible components can be built using the v2.0 compiler. The .NET Framework is automatically installed by Visual Studio. It can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site. To execute applications that use the resulting .NET components, the target machine must have the matching .NET Framework installed.
  5. MATLAB Builder NE supports building .NET assemblies but not COM objects when using the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK without Microsoft Visual Studio.
  6. Fortran compilers are supported with Simulink only for creating Simulink S-Functions using the MATLAB MEX command. The S-Functions can be used with normal and accelerated simulations.
  7. xPC Target supports Fortran code in Simulink models using C-MEX wrapper S-Functions.
