Consensus seems to be that this is a duplicate of bug #37623. No response from reporter indicating any differently. Marking as duplicate and closing.

Tried to start Octave with the "-i --line-editing" flag?

A google on "Octave windows 8" yields this post:

I am running Octave 3.6.4 on my i5 laptop running Windows 7 with little or no difficulty. I installed Octave 3.6.4 on my Windows 8 laptop (i3 processor) but it only comes up with the intro but no "cursor". When I enter anything other than "exit", it has an error and shuts down the window.

I am wondering if Octave 3.6.4 is compatible with Windows 8.1.
