[FieldTrip] FieldTrip Affecting Matlab path/startup.m

Hi Aswin,

I faced similar problems with adding paths. I solved it by first, changing my user privileges to administrator, then I was able to write on the pathdef file permanently and not add all the paths again every time I started Matlab, nor save it in a different location as your screenshot asks. Also, when adding folders with subfolders, the paths were not being really added, I added each subfolder separately. I have not had problems since then. I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Subject: [FieldTrip] FieldTrip Affecting Matlab path/startup.m


Just downloaded the fieldtrip toolbox (via GitHub) and since then, have been unable to update my paths. I thought this was because it had set the startup.m to within the field trip folder (path/GitHub/fieldtrip/external/dmlt/external/gpstuff/startup.m) so I moved the startup.m file elsewhere but keep getting the error attached. Any advice?

Any thoughts on why this might be happening and how to fix would be much appreciated.
