What are the SimMechanics Link Problem?

I am trying to import a Solidowrks assembly into simMechanics. I followed all the steps as in the web site. I have the pull-down menu SinMechanics Link in SolidWorks. When I try to save the assembly in the xml format, I get this error:

Could not start MATLAB. Check your MATLAB installation. Consult documentation to identify possible causes of failure.

I get this error regarding Matlab is open or not.

Note: I am using Matlab 2010a and SolidWorks 2010
