The MATLAB Runtime is a standalone set of shared libraries that enables the execution of compiled MATLAB applications or components on computers that do not have MATLAB installed. When used together, MATLAB, MATLAB Compiler, and the MATLAB Runtime enable you to create and distribute numerical applications or software components quickly and securely.
To download and install the MATLAB Runtime:
Click the version and platform that corresponds to the application or component you are using.
Note: you can find this information in the
readme.txt file that accompanies the application or component.
Note: The new version of macOS 10.12 “Sierra” introduces changes that impact many non-United States regions and locales. These changes are not currently compatible with any version of MATLAB Runtime. We recommend that you learn more and do not upgrade to macOS 10.12 at this time if you are impacted.

Open MATLAB and run the command
* MATLAB Runtime 9.0, for R2015b, is intended to work with MATLAB 8.6, which is also R2015b.
* * MATLAB Runtime 9.01, for R2016a, is intended to work with MATLAB 9.0, which is also R2016a.
* * * Online versions of MATLAB Runtime are only available for releases after R2012a. Older releases of MATLAB Runtime were shipped with MATLAB Compiler. If you do not have MATLAB, please request the Runtime from the MATLAB Compiler user who created the deployed package.
See the MATLAB Runtime Installer documentation for more information.
The version of the MATLAB Runtime is tied to the version of MATLAB.
