I want to create a Matlab executable which uses a Mex File (savepng from file exchange). Compiling of the entire programm works, but during the executaion of the executable causes the Mex file an error ("Sorry, auto-compilation failed."). The entire programm works fine when not used as executable.

Does the mex file work on your machine before compiling it into an exe?

If you look at the source for savepng.m you will see that it just does
mex savepng.cpp -DMINIZ_NO_TIME -DMINIZ_NO_ARCHIVE_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ARCHIVE_WRITING_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ZLIB_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ZLIB_COMPATIBLE_NAMES
You would execute that line yourself, before-hand, and include the savepng.mex* file in your project.
