I understand you are looking for information on supported compilers:
For Windows 64 bit OS, below are the links that list supported compilers:
Information on how to choose a compiler and examples on using MEX can be found in the documentation link below:

Hi Sudhanshu,
Thank you for the info. Now in 2014b ver. also possible to build the model for Real-time simulation.

Although Sudhanshu Bhatt's information is correct as far as it goes, he did not happen to notice that you are using Windows 10. If you are using Windows 10, then the only known way to get a compiler to work is to use MATLAB R2015b. All earlier versions of MATLAB rely upon a Microsoft Runtime that is not compatible with Windows 10 due to a Microsoft bug.

There are multiple components needed to get MEX to work on MS Windows. There is the compiler itself, and there is the .NET version, and there is the Microsoft Runtime libraries.
MS Windows 10 requires a version of .NET that is not compatible with MATLAB R2014b. With Windows 8.1, you were able to get around the problem by uninstalling the newer .NET, then installing the older .NET, then installing the newer .NET again. However, in MS Windows 10, you cannot do this, if I understand correctly. Even if you can manage to get the .NET compatible...
MS Windows 10 is not compatible with the Microsoft Runtime libraries needed for any version of MATLAB before R2015b. This is a Microsoft bug.
In summary, although you can get some versions of MATLAB before R2015b to run on MS Windows 10, you will not be able to get the compilers to work, according to the information I have seen. (If someone has gotten the compilers to work for earlier versions, they have not posted the information.)
