Bluetooth error in Windows 11 standalone desktop app (MATLAB Compiler)

8 views (last 30 days)
I can't get a very basic MATLAB app to function after using Compiler to package a standalone desktop app. The app works fine when running within MATLAB, but not after running the packaged app post-installation.
The app simply calls disp(blelist) when clicking a button.
Attached is the exported code from App Designer, and below is the error displayed in the command window when running the compiled application:
Error using scratch/ScanButtonPushed
Failed to detect nearby Bluetooth Low Energy peripheral devices. Contact Technical Support if issue persists.
Error in appdesigner.internal.service.AppManagementService/executeCallback (line 172)
Error in matlab.apps.AppBase>@(source,event)executeCallback(ams,app,callback,requiresEventData,event) (line 62)
Error using matlab.ui.control.internal.controller.ComponentController/executeUserCallback
Error while evaluating Button PrivateButtonPushedFcn.
Here's a bit of info about my setup:
  • Windows 11 Pro 64-bit, updated
  • Intel Core i7-10700K @ 3.8GHz
  • MATLAB 2023a Update 1 (
I had the same problem when attempting the compile-and-installation on my laptop (Win11 Home 64-bit, Intel i7-11800H @ 2.3GHz). I have not yet tried on Win10 or a Mac.
Is there a fix to this?

In order to resolve your issue, kindly try on the above mentioned platforms.

Hello Walter, thanks for your response. I dont know why this problem is still there for compiled app (compiled with latest Matlab Version R2023b) on windows 11 but not when it's not compiled...
