The MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR) enables you to run applications compiled within MATLAB using MATLAB Compiler. MCR does not require a MATLAB license and can be used to run the MATLAB compiled program on computers which do not have MATLAB installed.
Installers for the current versions of MATLAB Compiler Runtime can be found on our website at:
These can be used for both online and offline computers, as the download contains all the files needed for a complete MATLAB Compiler Runtime installation.
For R2018a and newer, you can run the following command to install MATLAB Compiler Runtime. The command will only work if you have MATLAB Compiler installed and activated, have a working internet connection, and do not have a proxy or firewall.
If you need to install an older version of MATLAB Compiler Runtime, please see the following article:
