Follow-up Comment #2, bug #53124 (project octave):

I just took an installed copy of Octave and moved it from "C:\Octave" to
"C:\Program Files\Octave" and ran the test suite with __run_test_suite__.  The
results look fine.  OTOH, I would expect most everything to be OK since most
tests don't touch the filesystem except for finding .m files, and that appears
to work fine.  The things I might expect to have problems are any system
commands.  But the pager and gnuplot appear to work OK, at least as much as I
tested them.  I did see a message from ghostscript about not being able to
open a temporary file when I tried to print a plot to a PDF file.

I'd like to remove the restriction in the installer and just fix any problems
that show up.  Any objections?
