Application deployment designed in appdesigner

1 view (last 30 days)
I am designed an Application using Appdesigner.
I wish to install in certain computer that do not have MATLAB & MATLAB Runtime installed. Is there any wayout?
I have gone through MATLAB official videos but I am not being cleared through them.
packing the application with pre-installed runtime increases the filesize of application

The application install will download/install the runtime if it isn't on the target machine when install the app the first time (it's smart enough to detect if runtime already is downloaded/installed).
But, you have to go one route or the other; the runtime must be available.

No, unless you do package the runtime with it the application itself isn't any larger.
But it has to have access to the runtime which is a one-time-only affair.
There is one route that is somewhat less painful; if you have the runtime installed on one machine, you can then just copy it to a target machine and add the necessary update to the LOCALPATH variable (Windoes). It is possible that it resides on a network machine rather than the local machine; that of course means that that network drive always has to be available to run the app.
See <MATLAB Runtime on Network> for instructions...of course, the same technique works to put the runtime on the target local machine as well.
But, however you choose to do it, if you want to run the app, the app has to have access to the runtime.
