Re: Install Problems Windows Version of OCTAVE

None of the install processes for the Windows version of Octave work properly 
on machines with non-English distributions of Win. More specifically, they 
don't work properly on machines where the command "dir" results in the word 
"Directory" in any other language.

I have made a fix for version 2.1.31 (the one you have), but you need to 
download:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/matlinks/octave-windows-dev-2000oct25c.zip 
(about 7 Mb)
The patch only works when you install to path names without spaces in them.

I also made a patch for version 2.1.33, which you can download from
http://members.localnet.com/~tomcw/ (about 17 Mb)
This patch works with any path name.

Although the newer version is a big download, I recommend it. Texinfo, which 
is used for the help system works correctly on this version, not so for 
version 2.1.31.

Let me know what you decide on and I'll mail you the corresponding patch.
