MATLAB 2018a -MacOS 10.13.5 - Crash on application start

91 views (last 30 days)
I installed MATLAB and SIMULINK for use with the Arduino Engineering Kit on a Mac running 10.13.5. Installation and activation works perfect.
If try to start MATLAB_2018a the application crashes imediatly:
Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (SIGABRT)
Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000
Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY
Application Specific Information:
[753] stack overflow
The system language is set to English, Update 3 is installed and JDK is 8u171
Does anyone else have this problem, or is this a known issue?
Thanks, Christian

If you want help with the Arduino Engineering Kit, I recommend that you use the MATLAB Maker Community and start a discussion.

Try executing matlab from the command line with the -nosplash argument :
/Applications/MATLAB_R2018a.app/bin/matlab -nosplash
appears to be a good workaround.

I also have this problem on my 10.13.5 release and have reported it to them. No help yet.

I was getting the same error as the OP. I can confirm the proposed work-around from Michael Haws does result in a successful start of Matlab and the hardware support packages for Arduino Engineering Kit are installing fine.

Hello,
This error can be resolved by starting MATLAB with the -nosplash startup flag. I have attached a link below that explains this error in further detail and how to resolve it.
Why do I get 'MATLAB quit unexpectedly' when starting R2018a in High Sierra? https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/407378
