My Simulink® Real-Time™ model build on my Windows computer reports an error:
Simulink Real-Time model build cannot use a file path with spaces for MATLAB install location
The error message indicates that 8.3 name or short file name generation is disabled on the drive where MATLAB® is installed and that one or more tools in the build process toolchain is not compatible with Windows path names that contain spaces. This type of path is referred to as a Windows long file name.
An example use case that demonstrates this issue is:
Install MATLAB on a non-system or network drive in a Windows system in a directory path that contains spaces.
Build a model by using the
slrealtime.tlc code generation
Because Windows default is to disable 8.3 file name generation on non-system drives and the QNX® Neutrino® toolchain for the code generation target is not compatible with file paths that contain spaces, the model build halts and does not output a real-time application.
For workaround information, see Build Process Support for Folder Names with Spaces or Special Characters. For more suggestions, see the Microsoft® fsutil 8dot3name utility page.
