This is likely to be something specific to the user's PC, rather than to Octave itself since startup is speedy for many other users.  Closing report.

I don't see those long start-up delays using Windows Defender.
Maybe you should check your anti-virus or firewall settings.

App version



Octave takes 20 to 30 seconds to start. Windows waits for security keys, is canceled, scans Defender, finds no problem, then starts Octave.


Octave boss should tell Microsoft Octave is safe so startup is fast.
