How do solve the 2018a HDL Workflow Advisor, Set Target Interface Error: "Reference to non-existent field 'ColumnHeaderHeight'"?

15 views (last 30 days)
I started getting the error,"Reference to non-existent field 'ColumnHeaderHeight'" when I select HDL Workflow Advisor step 1,2 Set Target Interface. This just started happening after opening a 2017b model using 2018a, and now happens for all my models, including ones that worked previously. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling HDL Coder, but I still get the error.

Solution provided by Mathworks Tech Support. File not attached to this answer, so get from Tech support.
This appears to be an issue in R2018a which is addressed by following the steps below.
1) Download the 'createDialogForMACheck.p' file that is attached to this email.
2) Navigate to the following folder: (matlabroot)\toolbox\simulink\simulink\modeladvisor\+ModelAdvisor\@Task
3) Rename the existing createDialogForMACheck.p to createDialogForMACheck_backup.p
4) Copy the attached createDialogForMACheck.p to this folder.
5). Execute the following command in the MATLAB command window: >> rehash toolboxreset
6) Restart MATLAB.
