To run Pointwise in batch mode with the GUI from a DOS prompt would be:

Code:
C:\Program Files\Pointwise\PointwiseV17.1R4\win64\bin\Pointwise.exe my_script.glf
or without the GUI:

Code:
C:\Program Files\Pointwise\PointwiseV17.1R4\win64\bin\tclsh.exe my_script.glf
Note: This is just an example. The path to your Pointwise bin directory might be different. Also, for the second option, you need to use Pointwise's tcl shell and not another one you might have installed because its own is setup to load the appropriate libraries so Pointwise commands work.

Now you'll just have to figure out how to call an external program from Matlab. It's been a long time since I've used Matlab and I don't own it so you're on your own in this regard.
