Matlab 2014a 32-bit mex -setup issue to install Visual 2008 Express edition

4 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I have a Matlab 2014a 32-bit installation. I also have installed on my pc Visual studio 2008 Express. When I try to set the C++ compiler using the command mex -setup, c++ compiler is not found. Is Matlab 2014a 32-bit compatible with Visual studio 2008 Express ?

In the near future you will be required to update your code to utilize the new API. You can find more information about this at: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/upgrading-mex-files-to-use-64-bit-api.html.
To choose a different language, select one from the following: mex -setup C++ mex -setup FORTRAN "
Do I miss something during the installation ?

It appears that Visual Studio 2008 Express is not compatible with 2014a.
It is not in the verbose list you show, nor is it on the website.
