When clicking on the application item from the start menu, what happens? Does itlook like it is loading, does it crash with a message, does the octave window appear briefly

Can you run the command line version of octave ?

I am not able to launch Octave 4.2.1 in windows 10 after a reboot. After installation, it had worked, seems rebooted once at that time without issue. This is the second time I am uninstalling and re-installing due to the same error. How to solve this or work around this. I did a "sfc /scannow" from windows command prompt as admin and still problem not resolved.

"I guess there is some temporary files being created as part of windows installer and it becomes obsolete later"

Please help
