Don't think that's related to Symbolic. I wonder if the was down for a while or something like that. Try again later?

But to install Symbolic I need to install by using this command  (Need

The thing is known, I think its because the Octave package for windows uses an old Perl. Hopefully it will be fixed in the next release of Octave.

Would it not be good if Symbolic is allready included in the
installation package? The other packages for the Windows installation
are included.

You mean in the Octave installation package I assume. I think that's a decision that is made by whoever is making the Windows packages. Possibly Symbolic has been changing quickly recently so that might be a good reason not to bundle it. That and increasing the size of the resulting install file. Of course, its possible Symbolic could get added in a later release.

And as allways. Thank you for developing this package.

You're welcome. Please report any problems, and help us make it better if you can!
