  • Packaging tools for add-ons and MATLAB Compiler and MATLAB Compiler SDK are not supported.
  • Windows-specific components like COM are not supported. 
  • xlsread and xlswrite will work in basic mode.
  • Using the MEX command to build C/C++ or Fortran MEX-files is not supported.
  • Files larger than 256 MB cannot be uploaded on MATLAB Online.
  • The graphical interface to the profiler is not supported.
  • Use of the shell escape bang (!) command is not fully supported.
Simulink

Most Simulink features, including editing and simulating models, are supported.

Features that are not supported:

  • Mask Editor
