Hi Haoran,

Your problem can be solved by the following steps:
1) start->accessories->Command Prompt;
2) mdce uninstall
3) mdce install
4) Computer->Manage->Services and Applications->Services->Matlab Distributed Computing Server->Properties->Log On->Log on as This account
and then fill your account name and password.
5) in command window:
mdce start

It should be work with your username.

Dear all,

I have another problem: I have successfully run matlab on distributed machines:
1) jm1= findResource('scheduler', 'type','jobmanager','name','job1','LookupURL','');

2) job1 = createJob(jm1);

3) set(job1,'FileDependencies', {'Generate_Task.m'});

4) createTask(job1,@Calculate_Task,1,{Induction,1});
5) submit(job1);
6) waitForState(job1,'finished');

The code 'Generate_Task.m' can run on other machines.

However, in the code the following line can't run successfully (the external execute
program didn't run at all):

I have tested that without distributed running, this line is OK.
Could anyone help me to take a look at it?
