# IMPORTANT: Run the {{Path|post-install.bat}} file before running Octave the first time to reduce plot delays due to the Windows font cache and make the pre-installed packages visible to the system.

# The exe installer prompts you to choose which Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) library to use, and creates a shortcut to a BLAS switcher program. The 7z/zip archives default to using [https://netlib.org/blas Reference BLAS].  [https://www.openblas.net OpenBLAS] is also available, and may be preferable for certain users. 7z/zip archive users wanting to change their BLAS library can manually run the switcher program located at {{Path|/mingw64/bin/blas_switch.exe}}.
    
* Note: versions before 7.1.0 used .vbs and .bat files to start Octave.  The {{Path|octave.bat}} file is still available in {{Path|\mingw32\bin}} or {{Path|\mingw64\bin}}, depending on the version of Octave installed, for use cases requiring it for startup.
