After Code Generation a dll file is created in slprj folder and to regenerate code I must delete this slprj folder, the matlab refuses to delete the folder as it contains a dll file
so please how to delete any dll file in Matlab as the only way to delete is to close Matlab then delete the required files and folders then open Matlab again

What about using the "s" option of rmdir?

function [ st, msg ] = cmd_rmdir( folderspec )
% cmd_rmdir removes a directory and its contents
% Removes all directories and files in the specified directory in
% addition to the directory itself. Used to remove a directory tree.
narginchk( 1, 1 )
dos_cmd = sprintf( 'rmdir /S /Q "%s"', folderspec );
[ st, msg ] = system( dos_cmd );
end
Please try the above mentioned function if you are using Windows.
