Hello,
Matlab doesn't find an installed compiler even though microsoft compiler file cl.exe exists in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.16.27023\bin\Hostx64\x64
When I am running the command:
mex -setup -v
I get this output:
Looking for compiler 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 (C)' ...
... Looking for registry setting 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7' 15.0 ...No.
... Looking for registry setting 'HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7' 15.0 ...No.
... Looking for registry setting 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\SxS\VS7' 15.0 ...Yes ('C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\WDExpress\').
... Executing command 'set "vcroot=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\WDExpress"&for /f "delims= " %a in ('type "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\WDExpress\VC\Auxiliary\Build\Microsoft.VCToolsVersion.default.txt"') do @if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\WDExpress\VC\Tools\MSVC\%a\bin\HostX64\x64\cl.exe" call echo %vcroot%' ...No.
Did not find installed compiler 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 (C)'.
Since visual Studio Express is not installed on my computer, I don't understand why "set vcroot" points to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\WDExpress
I think it should be
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional
instead
Thanks,
