HowTo / Notes

How to run Simulink or Display Help content or overcome Bug#37381 by overriding msvcr80.dll

Hi,

If you are trying to run Matlab Simulink in wine1.7, you may find that Matlab will crash with exception(Bug#37381). Since, the bug is notified, it can take sometime to fix it. Till then, u can run Matlab Simulink by overriding msvcr80.dll.

Steps to override: (Assuming you have installed wine1.7.29 or higher, and Matlab)

1. Close Matlab, if opened. Go to winecfg by menu or typing command "winecfg" in terminal. A Dialog box will open.

2. Go to "library" tab. You will see options for "dll overrides".

3. From "New override for library", select msvcr80.dll, and click on "Add". Now, you can see the dll in list. The dll should be mentioned on the list like "msvcr80 (native, built-in)". If all is good then finally click on "OK".

4. You are now good to go. Start Matlab. It should work fine.

I am using Matlab with above mentioned override, Simulink is working fine.

Good Luck. Enjoy!!!

If having doubt about procedure, you can email me : rounaksingh17@gmail.com. May be we can solve the problem.


How to change startup folder in Matlab??

Hi,

When using Matlab with wine1.7, it might be possible that you will end up with /home/ or some other folder as your startup folder. Well, I am not sure what is it-- a bug or what. After changing the path in Preference, it sometimes does not open the initial working directory.

However, I have found a way around to this. Now, you can write a "startup.m" (one line script) and save it to (Matlab_ROOT)/toolbox/local/ . This .m file is automatically executed by Matlab whenever it starts.

Inside "startup.m", you need to add a command which is

cd 'C:\(Your Startup folder path)'

like I have written

cd 'C:\Matlab programs\'

  • Please use single inverted comma, if the filepath has space in between.
  • Use Matlab editor to write the command so that you can be sure that the file path is correct (as Matlab editor will show error using color fonts.

Have fun !!!
