The reason for the error might because of the installation of MATLAB in the root directory of a drive. Please check the output of the following MATLAB command:
The above command will output the matlabroot as "<directory>:\" along with a trailing backslash. The extra trailing backslash in the matlabroot at your system might be the reason for the error message.
Possible workaround could be reinstalling the MATLAB and check the output of "matlabroot" command, it should be without a trailing backslash.
