In case you're stuck, use the forum, but to get a good answer
1. What command do you give when this appears? Provide the exact steps (not all code, a simple example will suffice).
2. Indicate whether you use the GUI or CL version. Also Matlab-version and Operating System may help.
3. We hope you followed the tutorial(s)?
