I never used this program so I couldn't tell. Also, without knowing your computer specs, I can't really make an estimation. Why do you need to run this script for if I may ask?

This script is different from the one you linked in the OP. The script in the link you just gave me is in Ruby, while the one we've been working on to make it run is a Mathlab script.

Well, first we should determine what script you'll be running. The .m file that you posted in the OP or the whole Github's one you just posted. Because this last one will need to run with a Ruby Environment on Windows.

However you won't be able to run the .m file in Ruby, you'll have to download the repository from Github here:

This is the download link provided at the end of the article you gave me, in the "Download" section.

Yes. You'll need to install the Ruby Runtime Enviroment for that, then run the Ruby file in it to start the script.
Here's an explanation:
