Hi,
I get the following error:
Error using mex
No supported compiler or SDK was found. You can install the freely available MinGW-w64 C/C++ compiler; see Install MinGW-w64 Compiler. For
more options, visit http://www.mathworks.com/support/compilers/R2016a/win64.html.
When I click the "Add-ons" button in order to install MinGw, a window opens (Add-On Explorer) and the following message appears:
The Add-On Explorer is currently unavailable. We've been notified of the issue and are looking into it.
(do you get the same error too or is it just me?)
Is there another way I can download and install MinGW?
I have tried this and this but the error remains.
I use:
Matlab R2016a
Windows 8.1 64-bit

If I recall correctly you need to follow the link in http://www.mathworks.com/support/compilers/R2016a/win64.html to download MinGW, that if you try to download directly from tdragon then some of the settings will not get configured properly.

You can overcome this problem by manually installing the addons using the installation files.

To install the add-on manually, double click the add-on installation file in the MATLAB Current Folder browser. An installer launches to guide you through the installation process. I don't understand this step, you can help me. Where is 'add-on installation file' ? plz, help. I need to finish my final project.
