8.1 System Generator for DSP - Why is the System Generator for DSP installer failing with a "Failed to update" error message?

Description

Why is the System Generator for DSP installer failing with a "Failed to update" error message?

Solution

This is probably because the MATLAB install directory is Read Only and that the "%MATLAB%\toolbox\local\librarypath.txt" could not be updated.

It is recommended that System Generator for DSP have read and write privileges to the MATLAB install directory, because it does write files while in use. If this is not possible, the System Generator for DSP must at least have read and write privileges to the "%MATLAB%\toolbox\local\librarypath.txt" file.
