Hi I have prepared a simple matlab code and deployed it by means of deployment procedure in matlab in ".Net assembly" type (for use in 2010). The output Dll file of matlab was named "main". But that error occurs. I have added references.
What I really want is to define variables and give values to them in C# environment, calculate the outputs in Matlab Dll file, and finally show the results in C#.

Matlab Code:
function c=main(a,b)

C# code:
namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
public partial class form1.form
public static extern int main (int a, int b);

public form1()
private void button1_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
int a,b,c;
Tags: C#, DLL, Matlab
