I want to create a Matlab executable which uses a Mex File (savepng from file exchange). Compiling of the entire programm works, but during the executaion of the executable causes the Mex file an error ("Sorry, auto-compilation failed."). The entire programm works fine when not used as executable.

If you look at the source for savepng.m you will see that it just does
mex savepng.cpp -DMINIZ_NO_TIME -DMINIZ_NO_ARCHIVE_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ARCHIVE_WRITING_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ZLIB_APIS -DMINIZ_NO_ZLIB_COMPATIBLE_NAMES
You would execute that line yourself, before-hand, and include the savepng.mex* file in your project.
