Why do I keep getting an error when I try to install eeglab on matlab?

9 views (last 30 days)
Hi All,
I have the latest version of matlab and I am trying to install the toolbox eeglab which hopefully some of you might know of.
I have tried installing newer and older versions of the eeglab but I keep getting the following errors. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Other people I know do not have any difficulties installing eeglab.
Error using supergui (line 140) supergui error: argument 'fig' must be numeric
Error in eeglab>eeg_mainfig (line 1300) supergui(gcf, geometry, [], listui{:});
Error in eeglab (line 449) javaobj = eeg_mainfig(onearg);

You can also send an email to support@mathworks.com but I really don't recommend it since that will be so very much slower than just calling them on the phone. Installation help is free for everyone including those with the Student Suite.

Qaiser - since your post is a question and not an answer, please delete it (here) and re-post as a new question or as a comment to this one.
You may want to contact the authors of the software to discuss your problem and confirm that it is compatible with R2017a.
