I want to install simmechanics link software to import CAD file from Solidworks. So, I did download install_addon.m file and simlink.r2013a.win64.zip file. But, I do not know how to install or add 'install_sddon.m' file.
I followed this site.
However, I had a same problem.
Undefined function 'install_addon' for input arguments of type 'char'.
How can I solve this probpem?

Given the error message, Undefined function 'install_addon' for input arguments of type 'char', it sounds like MATLAB can't find the function. Where have you added this file? Is it in the MATLAB search path?

Hi, this is the file of the function that you are looking for.
I downloaded it with the r2018b version.
Best regards!

I’m sorry I didn’t know it. I just downloaded it from the Mathworks web page and posted here. Do you want me to delete it?
