AR# 11216: System Generator for DSP v1.0 - 'Error in ==> C:\sysgen\v1\xlDocs.m On line 62 ==> xlInstallAction"
System Generator for DSP v1.0 - 'Error in ==> C:\sysgen\v1\xlDocs.m On line 62 ==> xlInstallAction"
Keywords: System Generator, SysGen, docs, help, setup, install, setup.m, xldocs
General Description: I am installing System Generator and encounter the following error:
??? Error using ==> xlinstallaction Cannot make directory toolbox because does not exist. Error in ==> C:\sysgen\v1\xlDocs.m On line 62 ==> xlInstallAction; Error in ==> C:\sysgen\v1\setup.m On line 15 ==> xlDocs;
(The documentation installer fails if MathWorks documentation has not already been installed.)
The SysGen documentation installer assumes that users have already installed MathWorks documentation. The MathWorks documentation installer creates the directory "$MATLAB/help/toolbox" and the System Generator installer assumes it is already there. If it is not there, then the above error occurs.
To work around this problem:
If you have not installed any MathWorks documentation, you can install documentation from your MATLAB docs CD. (NOTE: In R12, the docs CD is separate from the program CD, unlike R11).
You can also create your own help/toolbox directory in the MATLAB tree before installing System Generator. This allows you to get the SysGen blockset online docs, even if you have no TMW docs.
