MATLAB: Running mexw64 files in R2013a Student version

32bit64bitMATLABmex files

I have Matlab Student version R2013a, which responds "mexw32" to the "mexext" command (even though I'm running it over Windows 8.1 64 bit). Is it possible to run a "mexw64" file on this version of Matlab or should I update it to a different/newer one?

  • mexext replies the extension matching to the currently running Matlab version. Obviously you have a 64 bit operating system but installed a 32 bit Matlab. Then it is not possible to run a mexw64 file.
    It has many advantages to install a 64 bit Matlab instead.
