Installing MATLAB Engine API for Python

71 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
I'm going through the documentation available here https://in.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/install-the-matlab-engine-for-python.html to install matlab engine in python.
I did
cd "matlabroot\extern\engines\python"
after which I have to do
python setup.py install
But I am not sure what has to be done when there are multiple python versions installed. How can I specify the path to the python version / virtuen env in which I want to set up the matlab engine in the command `python setup.py install`?
Suggestions will be useful

Activate the virtual environment and then run these line
cd "matlabroot\extern\engines\python"
python setup.py install
Alternatively, you can also try the following without activating the environment
cd "matlabroot\extern\engines\python"
/path/to/virtualenv/python setup.py install
but this second option can cause some issues.

Try this
eng = matlab.engine.start_matlab()
eng.main(nargout=0)
