What does this strange error mean when I am trying to compiler my GUI as standalone application in MATLAB Compiler R2020b?

7 views (last 30 days)
My application only consists of .m files and .fig files.
The packaging works without issues but after that, I get the following error during the compilation:
File analysis was canceled because the following error occurred: Import argument "internal.matlab.importtool.server.ImportUtils" in MATLAB code 'C:\Program Files (x86)\toolbox\matlab\datatools\importtool\matlab\peer\+internal\+matlab\+importtool\+peer\uiimportFile.m' cannot be found or cannot be imported.
 And in an additional window:
Input was not a valid graphics object. Error in = > my_gui.m at line 42
(The referenced line of code called the gui_mainfcn.)

Please note that the mentioned path in the error message "C:\Program Files (x86)\toolbox\matlab\datatools\importtool\matlab\peer\+internal\+matlab\+importtool\+peer\uiimportFile.m" is quite strange. If this is really your MATLAB root directory, please try a fresh installation in an appropriate folder like "C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2020b".
Besides this, the Import Tool is not supported for code generation. So in case you are using this functionality, it should be removed from your app before compilation (
