The MATLAB Runtime is a standalone set of shared libraries that enables the execution of compiled MATLAB applications or components on computers that do not have MATLAB installed. When used together, MATLAB, MATLAB Compiler, and the MATLAB Runtime enable you to create and distribute numerical applications or software components quickly and securely.
To download and install the MATLAB Runtime:
Click the version and platform that corresponds to the application or component you are using.
Note: you can find this information in the
readme.txt file that accompanies the application or component.
Note: R2014a-2016a does not support macOS Sierra 10.12. If you choose to run any of these versions of the MATLAB Runtime on this unsupported macOS version, you might need to install a patch to fix an incompatibility issue. Learn more to determine if this incompatibility impacts you. We strongly recommend that you do not run any version of the MATLAB Runtime older than R2014a on macOS Sierra 10.12.

Open MATLAB and run the command
* MATLAB Runtime 9.0, for R2015b, is intended to work with MATLAB 8.6, which is also R2015b.
* * MATLAB Runtime 9.01, for R2016a, is intended to work with MATLAB 9.0, which is also R2016a.
* * * Online versions of MATLAB Runtime are only available for releases after R2012a. Older releases of MATLAB Runtime were shipped with MATLAB Compiler. If you do not have MATLAB, please request the Runtime from the MATLAB Compiler user who created the deployed package.
Save the MATLAB Runtime installer file on the computer on which you plan to run the application or component.
Double click the installer and follow the instructions in the installation wizard.
See the MATLAB Runtime Installer documentation for more information.
The version of the MATLAB Runtime is tied to the version of MATLAB.
