I have quite the same problem like NJank.
I am fighting little bit with importing data from xls. (Unfortunately it is
not possible to convert these data
to another format now.)

I have: Octave 4.0.0 and Windows 8

Because I also I didn't have the i/o pacage so I tried to install it.
I behaved according to this link.

I used:

cd ( [ OCTAVE_HOME  filesep  "src"]) 
pkg  install  -auto  windows-1.2.1.tar.gz 


>>pkg list
Package Name  | Version | Installation directory
     windows *|   1.2.1 |

>> help xlsread
error: help: Functions for spreadsheet style I/O (.xls .xlsx .sxc .ods .dbf
etc.) are provided in the io package. See `'.

Please read `' to learn how you can
contribute missing functionality.

But there is still impossible to use xlsread function.

I tried to use another commands like:

pkg load io
pkg install -forge -auto io 
pkg rebuild -auto io

 it didn't works also.

My question is, if I need to install this i/o package in different way?

Thank you in advance for any help.
