MCR incompatibility with Mountain Lion?
6 views (last 30 days)
It seems there is an incompatibility between the MCR and Mountain Lion. The following minimal Python code is just trying to initialize the MCR. It works fine with the MCR v711, but it breaks with the latest one (downloaded from http://www.mathworks.co.uk/products/compiler/mcr/index.html) v80.
libtest = ctypes.cdll.LoadLibrary('libmwmclmcrrt.dylib')
This: mclInitializeApplication_proxy crashes with the following message: libc++abi.dylib: terminate called throwing an exception Abort trap: 6
Does anyone know how to handle this?

According this reference, the latest MCR version as of today is MCR 8.0 as part of the product MATLAB Compiler 4.18 and the Release R2012b.
The system requirements for R2012b list the Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) as supported platform.
I conclude that it is correct to assume that software versions should not be part of the problem. I cannot assess the cause of the problem, but before you contact MathWorks Technical Support, try createing a very simple stand-alone application in MATLAB Release R2012b and run it on this computer with just the MCR and see how it behaves. This helps to distinguish the location of the error.

It does work on Mountain Lion.
Have you installed the Command Line Tools in XCode Preferences (needed in Mountain Lion) and the patches from TMW:
