.CU Files for MATLAB

I am trying to replicate an academic paper. The code from the paper includes a .cu file that generates files that are needed for the remainer of the paper.
I did some searching and I may need an additional toolkit for MATLAB to run this correctly
From here, I tried the nvcc command, and my version of MATLAB does not recognize the function.
Is the following link the toolkit that I need to get this to run?

I am trying reinstalling the toolkit, and have received this message part-way through. Could this be part of the issue?

You need VS 2017, or VS 2015 Professional, in order to use CUDA properly.

Hi Oli. You don't run nvcc in MATLAB, since it isn't a MATLAB feature. You run it at a Windows Command Prompt (or Powershell). Use it to generate a PTX file and then load that into MATLAB using the CUDAKernel feature. To use this properly is an Advanced skill because it requires you to understand a bit about CUDA code and CUDA kernels.
