I guess you have Visual Studio 2008 installed, right?
Then you need to setup your system such that MS compiler can find the
standard include files and libraries out of the box. This is done through the
environment variables INCLUDE and LIB. You have 2 possibilities:
1) define the environment variables at system-level (right-click on
"My Computer",
or "System" or whatever it is called on your system, then use "Properties"), but
you have to know the right values to give to INCLUDE and LIB. You can get them
from the script vcvars32.bat that is installed somewhere in Visual
Studio installation
2) use the menu entry in Visual Studio start folder, which starts a
command prompt (there's usually such a menu entry), then start octave from that
command prompt.
