Follow-up Comment #8, bug #55725 (project octave):

In windows command shell I'm pretty user double quotes are expected to be used
in most things related to path definitions. I don't think I've ever seen
single quotes work.  Might I be correct in guessing that system() corrects
things behind the scenes for windows?

In any case, for those on windows awaiting a patched version, the following in
a batch file (also attached) in the same folder as octave.vbs will change the
TMP and TEMP environment variables to the 8.3 versions and then start Octave

for %%A in ("%TMP%") do set TMP=%%~sA
for %%A in ("%TEMP%") do set TEMP=%%~sA
start octave.vbs

(file #46292)
