Follow-up Comment #11, bug #41074 (project octave):

In comment #5 you found that the Installer Wizard wasn't shown.  But this
seems to apply only when the shortcut is running the executable directly.

Things seem to be different when the shortcut points to a .bat file, or maybe
we fixed how to raise the window for the Wizard.  I have tested by removing
the ~/.config/octave directory and provoking the Welcome Wizard and it works
fine with the /B switch and the shortcut set to run minimized.

Maybe the only remaining issue is that John D. reports in comment #9 that it
still doesn't completely eliminate a cmd window display.  From what I have
read and can understand about Windows, this seems to be the terminal window
which is processing the .bat file.  People suggest doing as little processing
as possible before executing 'start ...' to minimize the time that this window
is shown.  But I found that just switching the shortcut to run minimized was
enough.  If John D. can test that then I think that will clear up this final

I do have yet another possibility which is to create a trivial .vbs script
which runs octave.bat silently, but this would really be overkill as a vbs
script would invoke a .bat script which would invoke an executable.
