A Question About the exe file generated by Matlab Compiler

4 views (last 30 days)
Dear All,
If I generate an exe file using Matlab Compiler, can I still use this exe file after Matlab Compiler gets expired? What I want to know is that if the exe file is completely independent from Matlab toolboxes and database.
Thanks a lot.

I know that functions created with a trial license expire.
If you have a term-limited MATLAB Compiler license, then as far as I know then the compiled executables do not expire.
Term limits are common for Academic licenses, and are available for Standard ("commercial") licenses because in some organizations it is a lot easier to pay for software under Operations instead of Capital.

Yes, you can use it even after expiration of MATLAB.
MATLAB compiler builds standalone application (exe file) from the code written in MATLAB. Once you are all set with the customizations, while using MATLAB Compiler for your application, you have the option to package in the Automatic Installer for MATLAB runtime libraries. The application will use these runtime libraries instead of requiring installation of MATLAB. You can choose option to download these libraries from web or add MATLAB runtime libraries with the package. After creating standalone application, you can even share this application with anyone who don't have MATLAB installed.
You can also refer to the following link for more details:

Exception: executables created with a trial license expire when the trial expires.
