Hmm, thats odd. I first expected you need to run Octave with admin
privileges because I always do that, but trying the same installtion
procedure with a fresh Octave 3.8.2 (obtained from here and without admin privileges did finish with the
same results. For me pkg install is working perfectly fine and I get the
following output during installation:

>>> pkg install general-1.3.4.tar.gz
> warning: creating installation directory
> C:\Octave\Octave-3.8.2\share\octave\packages

I'm using Windows 7 64-Bit and the installer version of MXE-Octave 3.8.2. I
can't say anything to the second part of your message because I'm not
familiar with this subject (using mysy etc.).
