Deploying Standalone Executable with No MCR

22 visualizzazioni (ultimi 30 giorni)
Hello. I have a simple M file which creates a GUI, let the user chose a text file, apply a simple manipulation on the text file and then save the result.
I want to create a standalone application from this file. I read the help on the subject which requires installation of the MCR on the target machine. The MCR by itself is more than a 300MB file.
Yet I saw appliactions, such as IMATEST, which uses MATLAB yet requires nothing from the target machine but the deployed executable.
How could that be done? How can I create a completely independent application?
Thank You.

Well it's 2023 and the MCR is now a 3.7GB!
Plus it's now a zip with nearly 8k files, not a single file. (for windows)
This is a huge overhead for deplying MatLab code... (download > unzip > install > run)

As you have already heard, the MCR is absolutely required to deploy executables generated using MATLAB Compiler. According to the imatest instructions, they have two types of MATLAB-related files:
  1. P-coded (ie. .m files encrypted with the .p extension) which can be invoked directly from MATLAB.
  2. DLL versions of MATLAB code which do need the MCR ("Imatest IT/DLL also comes with the Matlab Compiler Runtime Libraries. More information can be found at the MathWorks website or below.")
However, if you really do want to generate a standalone executable from your MATLAB code without the use of the MCR, please consider using MATLAB Coder. This product generates C/C++ code from MATLAB code, but only supports a limited subset of the MATLAB language for code generation.

Unfortunately, I don't think that is possible right now. I think the MCR is a monolith. Please feel free to confirm this with MathWorks Tech Support and also submit an enhancement request.

My understanding is that there is _some_ customization that can be done with MCR, but that the size difference is only about 30 Mb and the resulting MCR is only good for running the single program.
