Hi, all,
I have delopved a tool based on R2020b with a few parfor loops in it. This tool has been compiled and ran in a server based on R2013a and parfor loop isn't running.
  • My question is does parallel computing toolbox comes with R2013a?
  • In 2020B, I run my parfor loop without specifying the number of cores or wokers. Do I need to do that in 2013a (e.g. matlabpool (4))?

Yes, Parallel Computing Toolbox was available for R2013a. Yes, in R2013a, you need to explicitly create the parallel pool using the old (now obsolete) syntax matlabpool(4) or similar.

It is not possible to purchase a license for r2013a toolboxes anymore.
What is possible at this point is to purchase a license for the current version of MATLAB and the Parallel Computing Toolbox. Then if you had particular reason to use R2013a (compatability mostly) then your new license key would also be valid for any previous version including R2013a.
