The release cycle for Octave 4.0 is starting which will have much better support, including binaries for Windows pre-built by the Octave Maintainers.  If 4.0 does not work file another bug report against that version of Octave.  No further bug fixes are being made for 3.8.2.

I downloaded and installed cygwin64, including the entire math section.

When I open a cygwin window and type "octave" it immediately terminates with no output---no error message, prompt. Nothing.

The output of uname -a is:

CYGWIN_NT-6.1 HarrisX 1.7.33-2(0.280/5/3) 2014-11-13 15:47 x86_64 Cygwin

octave location.:

 $ whereis octave
octave: /usr/bin/octave /usr/lib/octave /usr/share/octave /usr/share/man/man1/octave.1.gz
