I prepare a matlab code that has to use Ansys somewhere. I tried following lines;
dos('"C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v140\ANSYS\bin\winx64\ansys140.exe" -p ane3fl -dir "C:\..." -b -i "C:\..\input.txt" -o "C:\...\file.out"')
%
!"C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\v140\ANSYS\bin\winx64\ansys140.exe" -p ane3fl -dir "C:\..." -b -i "C:\..\input.txt" -o "C:\...\file.out"
This line works properly on command prompt. But in Matlab (R2014b), Ansys stops working immediately.
I even try to write cmd lines as *.bat file and call it to Matlab however it doesn't work.
How can I fix this problem?
Thanks

I met the same problem. Have you solved it?

That is still unsolved. I skip to seeking an answer for this situation, I just uninstall the current Matlab and install version R2013a. That solved my problem more quickly.

Use Dependency Walker on ANSYS outside of MATLAB to find out which C or C++ libraries it needs. Then when you set up the dos() or system() command inside MATLAB, set up the environment so that the directory is on the search path; more on that in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682586%28v=vs.85%29.aspx and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/694351/setting-library-path-for-win32-console-applications
