calllib issue... library not found...

45 views (last 30 days)
For some reason I have an error that says "Error using calllib Library was not found" yet I know it is in the MATLAB generals file, I even added the path manually to ensure my files are going there and it still can not find it. I was hoping to have some help if someone knows what the issue is, they would let me know what is up. Thanks!

Just for future people who may have a similar problem: Try adding the directory to your Windows environment system variables, either directly or in matlab, with: setenv('LibraryName', 'c:\Your\Install\Path\Library')

You are generating 32 bit libraries and trying to use them on a 64 bit MATLAB. Or the moon is still in the 6th house and Jupiter has not quite aligned with Mars. Take your pick; one is as good as another with the information you gave us.

Thanks for letting me know, but the code was the example of MATLAB's calllib. it just is not working. I was seeing if someone else ran into this problem. Sorry if it was not enough info, but it was the simple example that MATLAB website gave. However Jupiter was not quite lined up with mars, so it could of been that.....

Worked for me. Can you go here C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2013a\extern\examples\shrlib and tell us what files you see? Change the version number if you need to, and change Program Files to Program Files (x86) if you have a 64 bit system but are running 32 bit MATLAB. You should see shrlibsample.mexw64, shrlibsample.c, and shrlibsample.h.

I had a similar problem. I was adding .dll and .lib files to my matlab path, but had forgotten to add them to my Windows path. Try: setenv('CEDS64ML', 'c:\Your\Install\Path\CEDS64ML');
