Hi, I met the problem when calling cvxopt from matlab in Windows. Do you know how to build up the interface in Windows? Thank you very much

CVXOPT works in windows but this matlab interface does not in windows

Did you actually test it? CVXOPT is available for Windows, but I don't have a Windows computer with MATLAB, so I never tested this toolbox on Windows.

The problem is CVXOPT Toolbox doesn't work on Windows.

CVXOPT is a solver and CVX is a modeling framework. CVX relies on third-party solvers (SDPT3, SeDuMi, MOSEK, Gurobi) to actually solve a problem instance. In principle, CVX could add support for CVXOPT as a solver.

Why not use CVX ( which native for MATLAB?
