Is there an installer for windows gcc-compiled?

This is a known issue. Unfortunately, it was detected after the binary was released. Until the problem is fixed, you may have better luck to use the GCC-compiled version instead.

Please cancel this. I had a mixed installation. It's fine now, only problem is I can't use graphics_toolkit("fltk"); it hogs 100% of the CPU but it's a 10 year old PC

Just installed 3.6.4 after uninstalling 3.6.1. If I start it with the desktop icon it starts in a very few seconds ( great! ) with no error messages and works but it's using 100% of the CPU doing nothing!
If I start Octave from a command prompt it takes 40 seconds to start but no hogging it . Also I get the following:
warning: gmsh does not seem to be present some functionalities will be disabled
warning: dx does not seem to be present some functionalities will be disabled
warning: function C:\pgms\Octave\Octave3.6.1_gcc4.6.2\share\octave\packages\statistics-1.1.0\fstat.m shadows a core libr
ary function

Had a couple of crashes, the one below while running the attached km.m; usually it's OK.
