No new information. So, closing it as a duplicate of one of the other reports about this issue.

actually, you likely want to delete octave-gui.ini.  It is usually located at

%APPDATA% usually points to C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming

try renaming that file, then try to start the octave gui.  not seeing the ini file, Octave will recreate one with default values. This has helped many people.  please let us know if it works. if it does, perhaps consider uploading the 'bad' octave-gui.ini file to this bug report. it may help us identify what is causing the problem.
