Cvx_setup problem

Hi, I face a problem at the beginning of using cvx, when I use cvx_setup, i gives me an error:

ERROR: ------------------------
Error using cvx_setup (line 22)
Error detected by cvx_version
The installation of CVX was not completed. Please correct the error
and re-run CVX_SETUP.

And if I ignore the error and just continue using the cvx, it will report:

"An UndefinedFunction error was thrown on the workers for ‘cvx_begin’. This
might be because the file containing ‘cvx_begin’ is not accessible on the
workers. "

As I just download cvx from, So does it mean that I can not use CVX directly after downloading? I don’t know much about the license. Thanks in advance for any help here!

I have a student who is trying to install cvx-rd on a Mac and getting a warning that Prod2.mexmac64 is missing. When they try to solve a problem involving SDP constraints, they get an error:

Unrecognized function or variable “mexProd2”

Does this help? Installing CVX on a new Mac

An older answer linking to some other threads. Installing CVX on Mac new with M1 chip

I’m not a Mac person, so I have nothing to add to these threads.
