Compiling Octave on Windows is a difficult task that I do not
recommend unless you are willing to undertake a lot of hard work and
are willing to learn something about the C++ and C build process.

Compiling 64-bit indexing version of Octave is even more difficult.

My question about the Octave binary was just if it was  32-bit or a
64-bit binary (this is somewhat independent of the question whether
Octave is built for 32-bit or 64-bit indexing). I believe both
available binaries right now are 32-bit Windows binaries (with 32-bit
indexing), so they will be naturally limited just by virtue of the
compiler that was used to create them.

Perhaps we can build Octave with this to get a 64-bit binary:

I am not certain of anything I have stated here, since I do not
currently have access to a Windows machine.
