Downloading and installing the Matlab Component Runtime (MCR) Library

Notes on using the MCR installer:

  • If a Matlab development environment is installed, this includes the installer for the MCR installer and there is no need to download one. To find the location, type 'mcrinstaller' on the Matlab Command prompt. A typical location for this installer is C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2016b\toolbox\compiler\deploy\win64\MCRInstaller.exe
  • The MCR installer is needed only the first time a Modelit Matlab product built under a specific Matlab version is installed
  • The approximate MCR download size is 974M
  • As of Matlab version 2012a, the Mathworks maintains a web page from where the MCR can be downloaded
  • This page offers downloads for different Matlab versions, make sure you select the correct Matlab version and computer type
  • After downloading the installer, run it and follow the instructions
  • To verify the installation  (for Matlab version 2016b) follow these steps: verify MCR library installation
