How to Install and Run iSMS

Installing the compiled version of iSMS

iSMS is written in MATLAB but is compiled into a standalone executable software not requiring MATLAB nor a MATLAB license.

  1. Download the compiled version here
  2. Run the downloaded setup file
  3. Follow the installation instructions on screen
  4. Run iSMS.exe to open the software


The compiled version requires a free MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR) installed in order to run. If the MCR is not installed on the target computer the MCR will be downloaded and installed automatically during the installation process. For this reason you must have internet access when installing the software.

If you wish to install the software on a computer without internet access, download the correct MCR version here and install it on the target computer before running the iSMS setup file. You can find the correct MCR version in the readme file of the software.
