    I'm copying your question (and my response) to the IPOPT mailing list 
since others may be interested in your question, and perhaps someone may 
have a better answer than I do.

    I'm afraid don't have any experience with Matlab for Windows. What you 
need to look for is a file that keeps track of your MEX options. When you 
run "mex -setup", it is supposed to install an options file probably 
somewhere in your home directory. On Linux and Mac OS X, it installs it my 
home directory under the .matlab folder. On my system, the file is called 
mexopts.sh. If you are having trouble locating the file, some of the 
technical documentation at www.mathworks.com may be able to help you 
(also, try searching the comp.soft-sys.matlab Usenet group for answers).
