    I know you cannot support all versions of MATLAB on various operating systems. But I want to ask anyway.

    Are there any tips for getting this simulator to run under MATLAB 2019b and macOS 10.15.7? I know these are MUCH newer versions than was used for the original development of this code. Below are some of the various errors I get.

    When trying to build MEX files:

    Building with 'Xcode with Clang'.
    xcrun: error: SDK "macosx10.15.6" cannot be located
    /Users/nathan/Documents/MATLAB/LTE-A_Rel4/./C-source/Gold_sequence_generation.c:87:14: warning: incompatible pointer types assigning to 'unsigned char *' from 'double *' [-Wincompatible-pointer-types]
        gold_seq = mxGetPr(OUTPUT_gold_seq);
                 ^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    1 warning generated.
    xcrun: error: SDK "macosx10.15.6" cannot be located

    When trying to run LTEA_sim_batch_quick_test_MUMIMO.m

    Error using optimset (line 249)
    Unrecognized parameter name 'Simplex'.  Please see the options table in the documentation for a list of acceptable option parameters. Note that some parameters are only
    supported by OPTIMOPTIONS. Link to options table
    Error in schedulers.ZF_MUMIMO (line 41)
               obj.linprog_options = optimset('LargeScale','off','Simplex','on','Display','off');
    Error in LTE_load_parameters_generate_elements (line 895)
                BS(bb).scheduler =

    There are many other similar errors. Is it hopeless for this simulator to run on modern macOS and MATLAB version? Do I need an older MATLAB on Windows to be successful?

    Thanks for any help.

    Dear Nathan,

    unfortunately, I have no experience with using the simulator on macOS and can therefore not help you with the first issue.

    Regarding the second issue: ‘Simplex’ has been removed already a while ago from Matlab. However, you can simply remove the option ‘Simplex’, ‘on’. This should not be important for the simulator and Matlab should automatically choose an appropriate solver.
