I installed 8.4 on win 10 & did the remote install again.  parallel was installed w/o error.  I don't think you want to see the long log w/o a failure.  This is the warning at the end.  Thanks.

For information about changes from previous versions of the parallel package, run 'news parallel'.

The build error with Octave 8.2.0 has already been fixed in Octave 8.3.0 and later.

I cannot reproduce the build error from comment #0 with Octave 8.4.0 on Windows 11.
Could you please run `pkg install -verbose -forge parallel` and show the verbose output here?

Good day,

Fresh install of Octave 8.3.0 fails to install Parallel package

pkg install -forge parallel
configure: WARNING: No working fork(), no uname(), or no error.h found....

Any ideas? I have tried the previous patches with no luck or do i need to look for alternatives?
