Once you have installed a suitable compiler, at the MATLAB command line, command
mex -setup
and chose the compiler you installed.

The Windows SDK no longer ships with a complete command-line build environment. You must install a compiler and build environment separately.
So there are now no officially supported compilers on Windows 8.1. The real solution is to use Linux of course, or The Mathworks to support gcc on windows, or llvm perhaps.

Hello Dear,
I have the same problem with windows 8.1. I'm running MATLAB r2014a on my Windows 8.1. 64bit, Also I installed the MS windows SDK 8.1 for my windows. However, I can't see MS SDK 8.1 in supported compilers for MATLAB in mathworks website, and it seems we should reinstall MS windows 7 64bit and SDK 7.1 instead! I feel annoying do so, and I will wait till a solution can be found for this flaw in MATLAB. I'm waiting for that enthusiastically!
Good Luck.

So there are now no officially supported free compilers on Windows 8.1. Unless you are willing to pay for Visual Studio. The real solution is to use Linux of course, or for The Mathworks to support gcc on windows, or llvm perhaps.
