Instrument Control Toolbox
Hi Friend Support Group,

I have an academic licensed MATLAB. Is there any way to continue with MATLAB frontend without having 'Instrument Control Toolbox'?
(Or at least to run the examples, how can I avoid facing the error?)

Thanks in advance!

RE: Instrument Control Toolbox
I think you need the toolbox and you wont be able to run the examples without this toolbox, but I will check with my colleages.

RE: Instrument Control Toolbox
The communication is based on TCP/IP. So any functions, that implement this protocol, will do the job. 

For older versions of Matlab, there is the tcpip object, which we used in the example frontend:

In newer versions, there is the tcpclient:

Another alternative could be the TCP/UDP/IP Toolbox available on exchange:

All these versions probably need some adaption of the original frontend code, but it should be straightforward.

Alternatively to Matlab, you can also choose a Python or Presentation frontend:
