I've just run the code in the doc page you mention
(I post the code at the end of the message), and it
runs with no errors, returning the answer provided
in the doc.

Please compare your code with the code below and see
if there's something missing.


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% begin mydriver.m
% mydriver is defined as a function so as to be able
% to use subfunctions, and thus have everything
% (objective, constraints, call to fmincon) in one file.
function mydriver

x0 = [-1,1]; % Make a starting guess at the solution
options = optimset('LargeScale','off');
[x, fval] = ...

%-------------- subfunctions
function f = objfun(x)
f = exp(x(1))*(4*x(1)^2 + 2*x(2)^2 + 4*x(1)*x(2) + 2*x(2) + 1);

function [c, ceq] = confun(x)
% Nonlinear inequality constraints
c = [1.5 + x(1)*x(2) - x(1) - x(2);
-x(1)*x(2) - 10];
% Nonlinear equality constraints
ceq = [];
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% end mydriver.m
