Windows installation

I am having a strange problem.

I installed Octave for windows (the build from 
While testing I was having problems with the environment variables correctly 
pointing to the octave shell.
Octave could never find the .m files (for example).  When I started octave in 
interactive mode, I noticed
it said this was the most recent beta and if you wanted a more  stable version 
get it at
So, I thought it might be best to uninstall this version and install the more 
"stable" version.  I ran the 
uninstall program that came with Octave and it deleted all the files and 
directories.  I downloaded 
the stable version and installed it.  This time nothing will come up, not even 
the interactive window.
I noticed the installation never installed the /usr and below path files (which 
includes all the m files).
When the installation was proceeding a cmd window popped up and a script was 
running it kept saying
"out of environment space" and then some more but I couldn't read it fast 

I am stumped.  I have tried uninstalling and re-installing.  It looks like the 
uninstall did not get rid of 
everything and left some registry entry or something.

HELP  !!!!
