Follow-up Comment #1, bug #43164 (project octave):
Yeah I'm sorry but this really looks to be caused by your own way of setting
You'd better set environment variables through batch filea, rather than put it
all in a global environment valid for all user programs.
That said, we really need a batch file to start Octave on MinGW, to help clean
up the Windows PATH from all junk that users and user programs (on purpose or
not, with or without their knowledge) have put there and that clobbers up
I use the following (to be put in Octave's installation subdir):
Rem Find Octave's install directory through cmd.exe variables.
Rem This batch file should reside in Octaves installation subdir!
Rem This trick finds the location where the batch file resides.
Rem Note: the result ends with a backslash
Rem Set up PATH. Make sure the Octave-version-specific subdir
Rem comes first. Use system environment variables for the
Rem Windows system dirs.
Rem Ghostscript is still an issue, I've left my setup for it
Rem in the line below:
Rem Start Octave (this detaches octave-gui and immediately
REM start octave-cli.exe
Rem Close the batch file's cmd.exe window
