MATLAB R2016a doesn't save user settings
14 views (last 30 days)
I recently installed R2016a on my Win 7 machine, and it has been unable to save user settings like layout and keyboard shortcuts etc. Today I had to terminate the matlab window from the task manager when it became unresponsive, and when I try to restart I get a Java exception
I have the impression matlab is trying to save user data and failing, but the permissions look good on C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB\R2016a.
I see that the files MATLABDesktop.xml and mylayoutMATLABLayout.xml are zero size however.
Any suggestions on other settings or directory/file permissions to check?
