READ THIS FIRST
IMPORTANT! READ ME FIRST!
To install Octave, go to one of the computers in the computer lab and copy C:\Octave to a thumb drive. Then paste the Octave folder to your C:\ drive. This will save you at least 30 minutes and a headache.
The executable file is C:\Octave\3.2.3_gcc-4.4.0\bin\octave.exe
Octave does not have to be in the computer's registry. I am running octave from my thumb drive so I can have it on any computer I want.
I will remove this from the main page on Friday afternoon (Oct 1).
