I am using Matlab 2015a, Python 2.7.10 on a mac running OS X El Capitan.
I installed the API without an error but when I open the python interpreter and try to import matlab.engine I get the Matlab installation is corrupted error.
The libpython2.7.dylib file can be found in
just like it's supposed to from what I read from other similar questions.
Is it a matter of compatibility between os 10.11 and the Matlab 2015a?

What is the version of Python? Python Engine from MATLAB R2015a works with CPython 2.7.12 from on Mac OSX 10.11.
