In silent mode, the dialog on exit isn't being called, which sets the variables to the users values.

I'll add default values for the variables, so that even if dialog on exit isn't being called, they will have a value.

From email reply:

I installed it using the silent option via command line. It did not appear there when I logged in as another user, with no admin rights, on that system.

Hi,

When Octave 4.4.0 is installed in Windows 10 x64, it only creates icons for the current user, not for all users.

It makes using the package difficult on a multi-user system.

Regards,

Paul T.
