LapSim is completely programmed in Matlab 2013b. In order to run LapSim, you need the 'engine' of Matlab in the background. This Matlab 'engine' is called the MatLab Compiler Runtime (MCR).

In the installation process, the software will detect that the appropriate MCR is not present on your computer and will ask permission to install it (1st figure).

You need to agree with the terms of the MCR.
