Matlab deployment Error because of folder permissions

  1. Jul 21, 2016 #1
    Hey guys, so I wanted to give Matlab a shot regarding programming standalone applications but I keep getting the same error whenever I use "deploytool" in the command prompt.
    The error message picture is attached to this message.
    According to the error message I must change my matlab current folder to a writable folder. The thing is, I don't know which Matlab folder it is reffering to. The Matlab program files folder is in the program files folder as most of the other folders from the other programs are, and this folder is perfectly writable. The message also says Matlab creates a .prj file somewhere, my obvious guess is that this file goes into the evil unwritable folder and thus the error showing up.
    I would investigate on this matter by myself some more but I'm kinda rushing to get this done so I would really appreciate your help again. :)

    What is your operating system, Windows, Mac or Linux?

    I'm using windows 10 and the version of Matlab in my PC is R2015a.
