Perhaps you need to open an ActiveX / COM object.

However, I found discussions that indicate that hid.dll is not an activex dll and instead needs to be called through MS Windows calls such as from C. Some information about how to do that can be found as listed below.
I also find information that suggests that you probably do not need to call those routines unless you are building your own hardware. That could potentially be an overstatement, though, in that the truth could perhaps be that you would need to call it if you are attempting to interface to hardware that is otherwise unsupported.
Note: MATLAB has very little direct USB support. As best I recall, it has one Real Time Workshop target, plus some upcoming limited Data Acquisition support in 2012A.
