Error after initializing HDL Coder

After initializing HDL coder with the following line:
hdlsetuptoolpath('ToolName','Xilinx ISE', 'ToolPath', 'C:\Xilinx\13.2\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt\ise.exe')
Whenever I right click now in Simulink, I get the following error messages:
No appropriate method, property, or field mouseClickPosition for class SLM3I.CallbackInfo.

A clarification: your command does not install HDL Coder. It adds the specified path to Xilinx ISE to the system path inside MATLAB.
Thanks Tim. I did mean to say "initializing" not "installing"

Try setting the path to ISE in your Windows environment before starting MATLAB. Your command is only trying to get access to ISE; if it's available by default you don't need to run the hdlsetuptoolpath command.

Per your recommendation I added an environmental variable for ISE called "ISE" with the path to the .exe, and then added its subfolder to my path variable just for good measure. If this is what you meant, it didn't solve the issue. I'm confused why, when I give it the 32-bit path C:\Xilinx\13.2\ISE_DS\ISE\sysgen\bin\nt, the errors are from the 64-bit folder \nt64.
Xilinx has specific directions on how to add their tool to your Windows system path. Whatever they are, you will need to follow. I am guessing that you may have to update the PATH variable in addition to the ISE variable. Once you can run ISE successfully from the command line, MATLAB should inherit and use that same setup.
