I have a problem. I`m trying to install the addon to connect Matlab and SolidWOrks and I get this error:
install_addon('smlink.r2010a.win64.Zip') ??? Undefined function or method 'install_addon' for input arguments of type 'char'.
Can u tell me where I`m doing wrong? The OS is Windows 7 and Matlab(2010a) is on 64.

You must have file 'install_addon.m' in your current folder. First try to run it.

You need to download install_addon.m and the platform-specific ZIP file. Then go to the directory containing the downloaded files and run the command.
