11.3 System Generator for DSP - Why do I receive the error message "Error evaluating 'OpenFcn' callback of Xilinx Gateway In Block block (mask)" when I run MATLAB Student Edition?


When I attempt to run System Generator with a Student Edition of MATLAB, I receive the following error message:

"Error evaluating 'OpenFcn' callback of Xilinx Gateway In Block block (mask)

'Dsdata8/phi Error using ==> <a href="error

X:\Xilinx\10.1\DSP_Tools\common\bin\..\..\sysgen\bin\xlOpenGui.p,149,1"> xlOpenGui at 149</a>

Error using ==> xlCOMServer at 21

Unable to find MATLAB window with title matching "MATLAB"."


This error is due to a known issue with System Generator running on the Student Edition of MATLAB. Currently, System Generator is not supported on this version of MATLAB. For details on supported tools see (Xilinx Answer 17966).

This issue is fixed in 11.4.
