I have Matlab 2017b. I have downloaded and installed this app before. But recently I got a new computer and I am trying to do the same again.
While installing the app the error message is that it fails to download the third party software: MinGW 5.3.0 from
There is support available for this problem for other versions of Matlab. I tried to use that method as well. But it did not help.
