Installation instructions for installng MinGW C/C++ compiler is given for Matlab versions R2015:
MATLAB R2015b, R2016a, R2016b, R2017a: MinGW GCC 4.9.2 from TDM
MATLAB R2017b and R2018a: MinGW GCC 5.3 from mingw-w64.org
MATLAB R2018b and beyond: MinGW GCC 6.3 from mingw-w64.org
I personally bought my R2007 and am reluctant to invest in another morre recent Matlab version. There must be an old tech note that describes the procedure for installing a C/C++ compiler.

Matlab R2007 is not supported under Windows 7. MinGW is not supported for Matlab R2007. In consequence the combination of a modern compiler, an old OS and an ancient Matlab version is assumed to work instable, or if you are lucky not to work at all.
I used OpenWatcom, BCC 5.5, LCC (even newer versions downloaded from the net) MSVC 2005 Express successfully with Matlab 6.5.1. It should work directly in R2007a also.
Do you have a really good reason to install MinGW? If so, upgrading Matlab is the best way to do so.
