This was the third hit on the list when googling "compatible compilers matlab 2016b".
Just a hint for the next time you try figuring out something like that.


thanks a lot! could you please help me with the following issues. I'm dealing with C++ and while debugging failing at <lib>Initialize(). if you need any further information please ping me. error: Access violation reading location
Access violation: you are trying to access an invalid memory location.
What's the source of the error? No idea without looking at your code. This is something that is easier to troubleshoot using a debugger than reading code, unless it's glaringly obvious.
Also, that is a totally different question.
Please accept the answer that best solves your problem. It is the only "payment" us volunteers get.
Were you able to solve the issue of Access violation? I am facing a similar issue and need some help!
