You are calling g++ incorrectly. The -c option compiles a source file into an object file, not an executable.

in the CMD box I specify the command

g++ -I c:\octave\octave-4.4.0\include\octave-4.4.0 -I c:\octave\octave-4.4.0\include\octave-4.4.0\octave -c standalone.cc -o standalone440.exe

this will create the exe.

After running standalone440.exe I got the error message:
This version of C:\Apps\octave\Hello\standalone440.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher.

the standalone.cc file is given in issue 53920

before given the g++ command I run
path = c:\octave\octave-4.4.0\bin;%PATH%
set TERM="cygwin"
set GNUTERM="wxt"
set GS="gs.exe"

path = c:\octave\octave-4.4.0\qt5\bin;%PATH%
set QT_PLUGIN_PATH=c:\octave\octave-4.4.0\qt5\plugins
