On a Mac, use the Terminal and then
source activate nameof3.5environment
Then install.
cd /Applications/MATLAB_R2017a.app/extern/engines/python [change to whatever version of Matlab you have]
python setup.py install --prefix="/Users/username/anaconda/"

Suppose Python is installed in the path "C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\envs\py2" Try the command like this to specify the python executable.
pyversion('C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\envs\py2\pythonw.exe')
Note that the specified executable is pythonw.exe
