(A) I installed Octave 4.4.1 on my machine running Windows 10 x64 version. I
installed it at d:\Octave.

(B) When I click the desktop shortcut "GNU Octave (GUI)" after installation,
it opens up Octave.vbs file instead of opening the GUI.

(C) I can start the CLI version though by double-clicking
"D:\Octave\bin\octave-cli.exe". Nothing happens if I click the desktop
shortcut "GNU Octave (CLI)".

(D) I tried starting "Start GUI" from octave command line. I got the following

      octave:1> start GUI
      error: 'start' undefined near line 1 column 1

(E) I have installed JRE before installing Octave (using
"jre-8u201-windows-x64.exe"). In the command prompt, I can successfully run
java command. The following is the output of "java-version":

    C:>java -version
    java version "1.8.0_201"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_201-b09)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.201-b09, mixed mode)

(F) I got help @
     Please refer to the link for further discussion.

Please let me know if you need more information.
