Octave-Forge Windows install question

I'm trying to use Octave on windows without installing it. What I've
done is simply install it on one machine, and rar and copy it to the
other machine.

However, it doesn\t seem to be working. When starting with the same
command, it simply doesn't work. When invoking bin\sh manually (which
works on original install), it seems that the root filesystem is
mounted instead of the directory itself. I've searched through the
environment variables, the registry and grepped the install directory,
but I can't seem to find anything which explain this behaviour.

Anybody know what's happening? Or have workarounds?
