As far as I can see, there are two things wrong with your configuration:

1) you are running a Windows OS. ;-)
2) The gnuplot definition might be wrong:
'gnuplot_binary= "pipe-gnuplot.exe /octave/plots"'
 I THINK it should be 'gnuplot_binary= "\bin\pipe-gnuplot.exe
I have no idea if that "\octave\plots" works. I thought the
gnuplot_binary should
just point to the gnuplot binary: 'gnuplot_binary=\bin\pipe-gnuplot.exe`
