Thanks. I'm closing this as a duplicate of bug #45458, which has more information and debugging discussion. Please follow up there with any further info or questions about how to help, I'm sure there is something you can do.

Thanks. It took 60 seconds to respond on a fast enough desktop.

If I can do something to help, please let me know. Perhaps some logging, whatever. I am not really affected at present, just willing to help if required.

How long did you wait for the plot window to appear? Several users have reported that the first plot may take anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple minutes to appear, something to do with a font cache being compiled.

If you wait longer and the plot finally appears normally, this is a known issue (not sure if it has a resolution).

Operating system: Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64 bit
Restrictions: No admin rights (reason for zip file based installation)
Installation dir: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\prog\octave-4.0.0
Octave installation file: octave-4.0.0_0.zip
Startup command: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\prog\Octave-4.0.0\octave.vbs --force-gui

Commands after successful startup:

x = 1 : 0.1 : 10;
y = x.^2;

The plot window opens but remains blank. On the attempt to close the plot window, a Windows dialog pops up saying that Octave fails to respond. Octave can only be closed this way. Only Therefore I would consider it a crash.

I would be more than happy to run within limits (no admin rights on this computer) any diagnostics as recommended.

I am successfully using the same version installed via the installer on a Windows 7 computer.
