Hi, I have a gui (made through a class method, in a class folder) that on start up checks whether or not the user has a specific toolbox installed.
I do this by:
if a particular toolbox is not installed, it will install via a .mltbx within the class folder.
If the toolbox IS installed but is not up to date, it will install via the new .mltbx file.
it uninstalls and updates successfully, however, I am running into the issue of where the user will have to manually delete the old folder-- so I am trying to automate this.
My plan is to change the matlab directory to the path containing the old and new toolbox folder.
from here: I know that there is a default installation folder for addons, but this can also be customized in Home > Environment tab > preferences > Add ons.
Is there a way for me to navigate to wheverever this installation folder is? And so then I can just use:
to remove the old one so that there wont be any naming issues.
