I see you are using single quotes in the EDITOR command in octaverc but
double backslashes.

You might first experiment with various amounts of backslashes. At one time
I had to use 4 consecutive backslashes to get the path to Notepad++
recognized. I think since then some bugs have been fixed - nowadays I only
need double backslashes but I don't know if I have single or double
quotes.around it (I'm on Linux now, so can't check). Maybe it even works
with single quotes and single backslashes.

Another option to try would be changing the path separator backslashes into
forward slashes, as on MinGW (and AFAIK in MSVC-built Octave) forward
slashes are simply accepted as path separators, too  8-O.
