How to run an .exe in the background

10 views (last 30 days)
I have an application file that I can run with command system('app.exe')
However I will have to wait for the application to close before I can issue another MatLab command. Is there anyway that I can run this application in the background?
Thanks,
Feng

Is it possible to run program.exe for a number of times (let's say one for each computer's core) and then let matlab wait until each application has finished?

Use .Net to start the processes. https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/497886-finding-pid-of-external-process-called-from-matlab#answer_407569
