(A) I installed Octave 4.4.1 on my machine running Windows 10 x64 version. I installed it at d:\Octave.
(B) When I click the desktop shortcut "GNU Octave (GUI)" after installation, it opens up Octave.vbs file instead of opening the GUI.
(C) I can start the CLI version though by double-clicking "D:\Octave\bin\octave-cli.exe". Nothing happens if I click the desktop shortcut "GNU Octave (CLI)".
(D) I tried starting "Start GUI" from octave command line. I got the following error:
octave:1> start GUI error: 'start' undefined near line 1 column 1
(E) I have installed JRE before installing Octave (using "jre-8u201-windows-x64.exe"). In the command prompt, I can successfully run java command. The following is the output of "java-version":
C:>java -version java version "1.8.0_201" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_201-b09) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.201-b09, mixed mode)
Any hint/help is appreciated.
