MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR)

Run compiled MATLAB applications or components without installing MATLAB

The MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR) is a standalone set of shared libraries that enables the execution of compiled MATLAB applications or components on computers that do not have MATLAB installed. When used together, MATLAB, MATLAB Compiler, and the MCR enable you to create and distribute numerical applications or software components quickly and securely.

To download and install the MCR:

  1. Click the version and platform that corresponds to the application or component you are using.

    Note: you can find this information in the readme.txt file that accompanies the application or component.
