Trying to create a standalone application is constantly giving me the error: "Error during packaging. Open log file".
The error report is:

I have tried increasing the user processes memory from 2GB to 3GB but it did not help.
NOTE: I am using matlab R2015b 32-bit. My system is a 64-bit system

Are you 100% sure the file 'default_splash.png' really exists in that folder?

@ Walter Roberson - No, I am not running out of space on C.
@Image Analyst - Yes, I am sure that default_splash.png exist in that folder.

Who knows? We can't drive your computer and debug it, but the Mathworks can. Call them on Monday and they will get you working again. You're a year behind in the release so it's worth upgrading and trying it before you call them. You have paid your maintenance agreement, haven't you?

This is an issue when the machine is running out of memory. It usually occurs with 32-bit MATLAB Compiler, but it can also occur with 64-bit MATLAB, if the machine RAM is 4GB or less, regardless of bitness.
The MCR is relatively big, and when packaging it gets copied and moved around so it uses a bit of RAM. This can be compounded if the icon and splash screen images are large sized pictures, or if there are other large size files being deployed.
Possible workarounds:
1. Increase RAM size if it is less than 4GB.
2. Use smaller size icon and splashscreen image (Since you are using the default splashscreen image, this point might not be valid in your case)
3. Shutdown other processes on the machine and attempt to free up as much memory as possible while packaging.
4. Use the web download option.
This error can also occur in cases where RAM size is more than 4GB, shutting down processes and freeing RAM space can resolve the issue.

Lack of memory. The answer above could be true. I had the same problem. I have checked Resource Monitor. Have a look at Memory picks !!! I have 3.6 GHz 8 cores, 16 GB RAM, PC. I have attached Resource Monitor print screen. The problem should never happened.

I had this problem as well with the following error:
Update resource failed: 110
Failed to create the web based installer.
No installer package created.
I had been workin in my Google File Stream directory at the time. I solve the problem by changing the output folders in the 'Settings' menu in the Application Complier. Made all the output files go to my hard drive and not my Google Drive space and it now works perfectly. I just drag the files back to the Google Drive folders after the compiling is complete.
I hope this help.
