Mex file entry point is missing, path messed up in Matlab 2012a

조회 수: 10(최근 30일)
FYI, I posted this question on comp.soft-sys.matlab
with Matlab 2012a, on windows 7, I noticed Matlab is going for windows files before matlab's for some commands:
EDU>> ver
Mex file entry point is missing. Please check the (case-sensitive)
spelling of mexFunction (for C MEX-files), or the (case-insensitive)
spelling of MEXFUNCTION (for FORTRAN MEX-files).
Invalid MEX-file 'C:\Windows\system32\version.dll':
so path is messed up:
EDU>> which ver
C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2012a Student\toolbox\matlab\general\ver.m
EDU>> which input
But I looked at my PATH in windows computer->Property, and I made sure Matlab is first thing. Restarted Matlab, and still the problem is there
My PATH from system:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2012a Student\bin;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft etc..
So you see Matlab is first thing.
I also do not see System inside Matlab path command?
EDU>> findstr(path,'system32')
ans =
EDU>> findstr(path,'windows')
ans =
EDU>> userpath
ans =
MY question is: Where would Matlab be reading this wrong path from? Is there another place to fix the Matlab path?
related question:
I rebooted windows. Problem is still there.
(ps. this forum is nice, I can edit my post here!)
thanks, --Nasser

can one answer their own question here? since I found the solution. If not, I can delete this answer and add this as comment or something. Do not know the rules here.
I just do not know why it happened. But doing this command fixed it
and now it works
which input
built-in (C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB\R2012a Student\toolbox\matlab\lang\input)
something cleared userpath somehow. I do not know how this happened. But I am happy now, Matlab is ok.

You can mark your own answer as the answer if it was the one that solved it.

Adding your own answer, like you did, is good practice when you find a solution to a problem.

You might try the "restoredefaultpath" command and see if that fixes it.

Thanks ImageAnalyst for the suggestion. Tried it. did not fix the problem. ALso restarted Matlab. no change, still points to system:
EDU>> restoredefaultpath
EDU>> which input
EDU>> restoredefaultpath; matlabrc
EDU>> which input
