Matlab Error Some Commands and Functions not working

Questions Addressed

  • What do I do if some commands (e.g., BENCH, DEMO, PEAKS) or functions produce errors or foreign character sets?

Since MATLAB copies all the preferences from the previous release to the new preference directory, the issue is caused because MATLAB is unable to find these functions.

Restore and Update Paths

The fix for this issue is to execute commands that will restore the path to default and update the toolbox cache.

1. Open MATLAB.

2. In the command window, type the following commands one at a time:

>>rehash toolboxcache

3. Quit and reopen MATLAB.
