Hi! I'm new and need help, and it's urgent.
While installing the support package, I get the following error:
"Error installing third party software Fantom USB Driver: Error executing command "realtime.setup.internal.rtt_fantom_usb_driver_installer('/Users/mikke/Documents/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2015a/downloads/legomindstormsnxt_download', '/Users/mikke/Documents/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2015a', 'Fantom_USB_Driver', '')"
Could not download Fantom USB driver archive:"
I installed the Fantom USB driver manually from the downloaded package, but I still can't install the rest of the package. Does anyone know how to install the package? I use Matlab R2015a at OS X 10.11. I was using Matlab R2014b on the same system before, and there were no errors during the installation process, although I was not able to communicate with the Lego NXT device through USB.

I have the same problem. Any time I like to install the support package for Lego Mindstorms NXT with Matlab version 2015a, I got "Error installing third party software Fantom USB Driver". Please help!
Thanks, Nicole

I have the same problem. It seems that some links are broken and the NXT is not supported in the new version of Matlab/Simulink. It is replaced by the mindstorm. Can anybody from Mathworks help us?
