So it seems you installed the windows binary installer.

Are you sure it isn't the page you are waiting for? (just do:

more off

before installing the package).

AFAIK many OF packages have been included in that installer.
Just run:

pkg list

and if struct is installed, do:

pkg load struct

(you might need/want to reinstall Octave as you may have wiped the prebuilt
struct package)
