Hello Manfred,
I guess this is a duplicate of bug #41733. Can you try Torstens hint (delete c:\users\USER\.config\octave\qt-settings (after having made a backup))

Hello Manfred Patzwahl,

Write ENGLISH please! Not everyone here speaks German, but I don't use Octave with Win7, so I cannot help you.

This is also the wrong place to obtain help from the community. Consider using the Help-Mailing-List. https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/support.html

Tell us there how did you setup your system, where you got you installer from and alike.

ich benutze Octave privat auf einem Win7 Rechner und erhalte beim Start immer die nachfolgende Meldung:
