I've installed MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware after I tried
a = arduino()
I got the error messages
Arduino IDE at folder 'arduino-1.8.1' is corrupt. Open Add‑On Explorer to reinstall
MATLAB Support Package for Arduino Hardware.
I've tried with both 2018a and 2018b. Could anyone please advice me on how to fix this?

Have you tried reinstalling the support package with administrator access? To do this right click on MATLAB icon and select Run as administrator.

Uninstall all suporting packages related to arduino. Uncheck the readonly and hidden attributes of ProgramData folder in C drive (this is were support packages gets installed). Then Run matlab as administrator. Install the hardware support packages and setup the hardware.
