To generate Excel add-ins or Generic COM components, you will need a combination of MinGW 5.3.0 compiler and Windows 10 SDK kit.
In order to install these, follow the steps mentioned below:
  1. Install MinGW-w64 from the MathWorks File Exchange: MATLAB Support for MinGW-w64 C/C++ Compiler.
  2. Install Windows 10 SDK from the Windows Windows 10 SDK .
  3. Run the following command from the MATLAB command window to test if the combination of “MinGW and Windows 10 SDK” is being detected by MATLAB.
mbuild -setup -client mbuild_com

mbuild -setup -client mbuild_com this works well in MATLAB command window, but when I run mbuild -setup in system terminal, I have a error message as "Supported compiler not found. You can install the MinGW-w64 C/C++ compiler, which also requires installation of the Windows 10 SDK." How can I make this work on system terminal? To provide some context, I am trying to compile C++ shared library created by MATLAB library compiler. Thanks.
