Solution
The following description is only valid for dSPACE Installation Manager versions greater than 3.3.1.
If necessary, update the Installation Manager from http://www.dspace.com/go/imupdate.

You should check at first, if the MATLAB Release is compatible with the dSPACE software at all:

Optionally you can select the new MATLAB Release as the preferred one.
A preferred connection is the default MATLAB installation which is used by the dSPACE
products, for example, when dSPACE software products automatically start MATLAB, or
generate specific MATLAB files.

MATLAB Support to a Different MATLAB Installation in the Software Installation and
Management Guide (SWInst.pdf).
