APP designed in MATLAB not starting
65 views (last 30 days)
I downloaded a MATLAB app via a .mlappinstall file. When I try to open the app, I get the following message: Function: 'GUI_Gas_Sensor' in the current folder shadows the app entry point. Change the current foler and execute the app again.
How can I get the app to open properly? Is there some sort of installation error?

Apparently there is another function named 'GUI_Gas_Sensor' in your current directory which shadows the app entry point. As suggested by the message Change the current foler and execute the app again, you can try moving your .mlapp to a new directory and execute the app again. There is also a chance that the .mlappinstall file itself has some problems, in that case you need to verify from the source where you downloaded the file.

It is the mlappinstall file itself that won't let it run. Delete it or put it in another folder. I have to admit that it seems like a very poor design, but it is what it is. Mathworks behaves more and more like Microsoft each year. It's sad.

Sorry if I answer to a bit old question, but I'm having the same problem. I have installed an app created with app designer, but it doesn't start giving me the exact message shown in first post of this discussion. If I change folder the app starts, but the i get errors about method not definied for class or removed from matlab's search path.
