Yeah, you should probably downgrade SymPy to version 1.4, then all tests should pass. The symbolic package has unreleased fixes for changes in SymPy 1.5, will be part of the next package version.

Installing using the win bundle 'may' not be too bad, depending on what it tries to run during the install.

I'll take a look to see if its easy to do that least :) unless someone else beats me to it

The symbolic package has never been included in the Windows installer, I think it's been discussed before.

Any mxe-octave devs / testers want to take this on or leave it out?
