SOLUTION TO SDK INSTALLATION ERROR IN MATLAB

When we install the Matlab versions above 7.12(R2011a) and Windows version 7 and above, we tend to get this compiler error that prevents us from installing the Matlab version.  When we try to install Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1, a supported compiler for MATLAB versions, the installation fails with the following error page:

true

This is an issue with Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1. It may occur under two scenarios:

  • If you have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 (Express or Professional) installed.
  • If you have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable packages (x64 or x86) installed.

The details on the issue from Microsoft are below:

 To avoid this issue:

Step 1:

Uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable packages (both x86 as well as x64) from “Control Panel” > “Programs and Features”.

Step 2:

Install the Windows SDK 7.1. During installation, under the “Installation Options” menu, UNCHECK the “Visual C++ Compilers” and “Microsoft Visual C++ 2010” components.

Step 3:

Apply the SDK 7.1 patch from below:
