There are many solutions for octave on windows.

The most complete overview is maintained by Philip Nienhuis

I maintain the cygwin package of
octave + octave-forge + gnuplot + ATLAS.
This seems to work on almost all MS platforms.


1. Install cygwin from
2. Get the file:
3. Install the file using the cygwin installer,
   or cd /; tar xvfj /path/to/package.tar.bz2


I currently only provide a P3 optimized version of ATLAS,
because this seems to outperform the P4 and ATHLON versions,
even on those systems. I have no idea why.


run C:\cygwin\cygwin.bat, then type octave


run C:\cygwin\bin\octave.exe directly, but first
   include C:\cygwin\bin in your PATH.
