Hi Manali,
This links explains the issue in Matlab 2016, which was working fine for me. Even 2017 and 2018 was OK on WIN7. After I migrated to WIN10, I started getting this error.
I am not sure if it has something to do with Win10 feature.

Please try to run the following in the MATLAB Command Window:
>> opengl software
And then try opening the Add on explorer again. It worked for me.
If that works, you can save the preference so that MATLAB always opens with Software OpenGL by running:
>> opengl('save','software')
