at the end of the installation of the Support Package "Communications Toolbox Support Package for Analog Devices ADALM-Pluto Radio" I get an "Hardware Setup Error" that the Adalm-Pluto cannot be found. A view to WIndows System shows the Adalm Pluto.
I tried to unistall an install several times, but it dindn't help.
MATLAB Version: (R2017b)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0 (Build 17134)

I'm assuming you have Commnications Toolbox installed...
If so, here are a couple of things to try:
  • Make sure that no other software applicaiton is talking to the Pluto (if you were using IIO Oscilloscope, make sure it's closed before launching MATLAB)
  • On some computers, the single USB cable connection for power and signal is not sufficient for powering the Pluto, so you get strange results. You can try running a second USB cable to the Pluto power input to see if that "wakes up" the device.

I had a similar problem on Mac OS X and the culprit was the "HoRNDIS" driver, an Ethernet driver so that the unit is accessible via IP.
Try deinstalling the Ethernet NDIS driver for it.

I have the same problem with a full mathlab (release R2021a Update 1) crash reporter message.
funny no-one sees a final solution here
