MATLAB Runtime is a collection of shared libraries and code that enables the execution of compiled and packaged MATLAB applications on systems without an installed version of MATLAB.


  • The version of the MATLAB Runtime necessary to run an application is tied to the version of MATLAB used to create the application.
  • Multiple versions of the MATLAB Runtime may simultaneously exist on a target machine. This allows applications compiled with different versions of the MATLAB Runtime to execute side by side on the same machine.
  • The MATLAB Runtime Compiler is large (700MB +). It will take some time to download and install.

To install MATLAB Compiler Runtime R2015a, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install mcr-r2015a

To upgrade MATLAB Compiler Runtime R2015a, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade mcr-r2015a

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
