Stateflow® software runs on Windows® and UNIX® operating systems. Your MATLAB® installation documentation provides all the information you need to install Stateflow software. Before installing the product, you must obtain and activate a license (see instructions in your MATLAB installation documentation) and install prerequisite software (see Prerequisite Software for a complete list).
Before installing Stateflow software, you need the following products:
C or C++ compiler supported by the MATLAB technical computing environment
The compiler is required for compiling code generated by Stateflow software for simulation. The 32-bit Windows version of the Stateflow product comes with a C compiler (lcc.exe) and a make utility (lccmake). Both tools are installed in the folder matlabroot\sys\lcc. If you do not configure MATLAB to use any other compiler on Windows operating systems, Stateflow software uses lcc to build targets.
The 64–bit Windows version of the Stateflow product comes with a default C compiler, LCC-win64. LCC-win64 is used for simulation and acceleration. LCC-win64 is only used when another compiler has not been configured in MATLAB.
Note: The LCC-win64 compiler is not available as a general compiler for use with the command line MEX in MATLAB. It is a C compiler only, and cannot be used for SIL/PIL modes.
For platforms other than Microsoft® Windows or to install a different compiler, see Setting Up Your Own Target Compiler.
For information about product dependencies and requirements, see www.mathworks.com/products/stateflow/requirements.html.
If you use the UNIX version of the Stateflow product or do not use the lcc compiler, you must install your own target compiler. You can use any compiler supported by MATLAB software, as described in Build MEX-Files in the MATLAB External Interfaces documentation.
To install a compiler for the Stateflow product, follow these steps:
Follow the prompts for entering information about the compiler.

If you plan to run the Microsoft Windows version of the Stateflow product on a laptop computer, you should configure the Windows color palette to use more than 256 colors. Otherwise, you may experience unacceptably slow performance.
