It seems that the problem does not exist any longer in Octave-4.2.2.

I'm using gnuplot 5.0 patchlevel 5 (wgnuplot.exe).
It is the version you get when installing this version of octave: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/octave-4.2.1-w64-installer.exe.

This works for me, although it takes a long time. What version of gnuplot are you using?

When running the following code, an empty pdf file is created and an error message is printed. However no Octave error occurs and code execution continues. The problem seems to be related to the mingw64 build of Octave. When running the same test on Cygwin, the pdf file is created correctly.

h = hgload("print_test.ofig");
graphics_toolkit(h, "gnuplot");
print("-dps", "-color", "-portrait", "-S1024,768", "print_test.pdf");

$ octave --persist -q print_test.m
Der Prozess kann nicht auf die Datei zugreifen, da sie von einem anderen Prozess verwendet wird.
