Follow-up Comment #3, bug #43164 (project octave):

(Some provisional comments - little time now)

As to the batch file:

- It needs some tidying-up; it still has the octave-version-specific stuff I
use for patch #8469 and also mentions my Ghostscript setup comment.

- Why one batch file for the CLI and the GUI?
IMO it is easier (for the Linux-oriented user community here) to have two
separate simple batch files, one for the CLI and one for the GUI. Makes
maintenance a bit easier - I think.

- What seems to be missing is the rest of the PATH after Octave's bin subdir.
AFAIK it is vital to have the Windows OS subdirectories somewhere in the PATH.
As mentioned in patch #8544 it may even be preferable to simply append the
original PATH. The vital requirement is to have Octave's bin/ subdir as first
item in the PATH. 
(BTW Octave will add it twice somewhere at the end of the PATH)
