Connector failing to run

After successfully installing the MATLAB connector, typing connector on returns the following error:
Undefined function 'connector' for input arguments of type 'char'.
I tried installing the connector again, which was apparently done successfully but again it doesn't seem to be working.

Hi Peter,
Although the installation adds the connector folder to your path, it's possible that this might not have happened. After you've installed the connector, what does
>> which -all connector
If you're on Windows, try opening MATLAB as an administrator and then install the connector.

I'm having the same problem. When I enter >>which -all connector Matlab returns 'connector' not found. I did install the connector. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I was having a similar issue. I had unzipped the subfolders (connector-1.2 and connector-2.0) when I first tried installing it. When I ran it again with the subfolders zipped, it worked.
Since I am running Windows 7, I also made sure to run Matlab as an administrator by right-clicking program icon in the start menu and selecting the "Run as administrator" option.
