Notes for the Windows (64-bit) Platform

  1. You must install a C compiler to use LOADLIBRARY on a 64-bit platform.
  2. Intel compilers depend on tools provided by Microsoft development products. Support for Intel compilers requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Professional Edition. Access to the 2005 SP1 edition is available from Microsoft as part their Visual Studio with MSDN offerings.
  3. To build .NET components, Microsoft .NET Framework SDK 1.1 or 2.0 must be installed. These products are automatically installed by Visual Studio 2003 or 2005/2008, respectively. They can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Web site. In future MATLAB releases, .NET Framework SDK 1.1 will not be supported.

    To execute applications that use the resulting .NET components, the target machine must have the matching .NET Framework installed.
  4. MATLAB® Builder NE supports building .NET Assemblies but not COM objects when using the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK without Microsoft Visual Studio.
  5. These compilers are not supported on Windows Vista.
  6. To use Microsoft Visual Studio with MATLAB® on 64-bit systems, "X64 Compilers and Tools" must be chosen during installation of Microsoft Visual Studio. This is not selected by default.
  7. Includes Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder and Stateflow Coder compiler support.
  8. 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.
