Information mirror of octave for windows 3.8.2 is added
GNU Octave is primarily developed on GNU/Linux and other [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/POSIX POSIX] conform systems. The ports of GNU Octave to Microsoft Windows use different approaches to get most of the original Octave and adapt it to Microsoft Windows idiosyncrasies (e.g. dynamic libraries, file paths, permissions, environment variables, GUI system, etc). Bear this in mind and don't panic if you get unexpected results. There are a lot of suggestions on the mailing lists for tuning your Octave installation. GNU Octave standalone ports for Windows are independently compiled using either the [http://mingw.org MinGW] or Microsoft Visual Studio development environments.
= Installers for Microsoft Windows =
The easiest way to install GNU Octave on Microsoft Windows is using [http://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/ MXE] builds. For the current 4.0.x release installers can be found [https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/ here].
If you got any problems while running Windows 8 or libstdc++-6.dll errors, try this
[http://mxeoctave.osuv.de/octave-gui.bat octave-gui.bat ] file and place it into your Octave folder (e.g. `C:/octave-4.0/`).
The plot command also doesn't work well in case of Windows 8 system.
See [[Windows_Installer]] for building instructions.
