Without any further information, this looks a lot like bug #45458. Any chance that the plot eventually shows if Octave is left to sit there for several minutes?

When I run that code, the plot window doesn't even appear. It just sits there and I have to force Octave to close with Task Manager.

Does it work with the gnuplot toolkit?

Test code:

graphics_toolkit gnuplot
plot (1:10, 'o-');

Sorry for the confusion. The plot never appears. The window where it should appear pops up, but then says it's not responding (freezes) and I have to force Octave to close.

Thank you for the report.

The summary implies a crash of the command window but the description describes problems with plot windows. Could you please provide more details, e.g.

  • does the plot appear?
  • what is the issue with the command window, does it really crash or is there no prompt while the plot window stays blank?

Anytime I try to plot a graph, such as sin(x) or a histogram, the plot window doesn't respond and I have to close it. I use Windows 8 and version 4.0.0 of Octave.
