Octave for Microsoft Windows

801 bytes added, 26 February
Installers for Microsoft Windows: updated for 5.1.0 and moved 4.4.1 specifics to outdated page.
# Extract the file content to a directory on the harddrive (such as {{Path|C:\Octave}}). Spaces or non-ASCII characters in the path are discouraged and may cause program errors.
# Manually create a shortcut to the {{Path|octave.vbs}} file in the main installation directory. (Right-click on the file, select 'Create Shortcut', and move the new shortcut to your desired location.)
# If a command-line only instance of Octave is desired, the user can create a shortcut as stated above, right-click on the shortcut, select Properties, and add ''--no-gui'' to the end of the Target field.# Run the {{Path|fc_updatepost_install.bat}} file before running Octave the first time to reduce plot delays due to the Windows font cacheand make the pre-installed packages visible to the system.

If instead you installed Octave from the .zip archive, you need first to rebuild the package list on your local machine. (The command above will produce a blank output and packages will be inaccessible before rebuilding.) Do this by typing the following command:  >> pkg rebuild The package list should now be populated with the pre-installed packages. All packages can be updated to the latest version by running:
>> pkg update
