I'm runing Octave 4.2.1 in Windows 10 with no problem.
Did you install 64 bits version?

Have a good day,
Renato

I have Octave 4.2.1 on a hp laptop wit windows 10 version 1709 and
have no problems.  I presume that you are running the GUI version of
Octave. Can you run the console version of Octave.  You might try
uninstalling and reinstalling Octave.  Can you trace exactly what you
were doing when the problem started?  If you can start the GUI look at
the command history window.

When I start Octave I get the following message

This is an unhelpfully uninformative error message. Personally I would test for this issue with a new OS user to rule out issues with how your Octave settings are saved under that particular user.

Dear Svetlana & Sourav,
I have also installed Octave 4.2.1 pre-built Windows 10 version on my Acer Laptop Aspire IV, running Windows 10. I am able to use for many hours without any trouble. Let me know if any other information that will be useful.

I'd like to generate a matrix like this (small version to give you the idea):

0 0 0 (three columns in this example)
0 0 1
0 0 2
0 0 3
.
.
.
9 9 8
9 9 9

Could anyone here show me how to do this efficiently?

thanks in advance

This is the decomposition on base 10, a way of doing it is

nc         = 3; # number of columns
base     = 10;
i            = (0:(base^nc-1)).'; # row index - 1
counter = mod( floor (i ./ base.^[(nc-1):-1:0]), base);

it should work for any integer base, but please do check.

THanks. I have another question.
As I am new to ML, I am looking for some inputs about the right method to
use for a problem statement.
However, I have had little help from redditt forum on this.

Do you know a forum where people are more active  and willing to help?

As far as NNET is concerned, there has been a recent GSOC project intended
to revive the NNET package for Octave last year.

The student and mentor of this project are in CC.

Dear Juan,
I bumped into the following problem. I changed your code to a function
like this:

function [counter] = decomp (base, nc)
i            = (0:(base^nc-1)).'; # row index - 1
counter = mod( floor (i ./ base.^[(nc-1):-1:0]), base);
endfunction

It works fine for a lot of cases but the case I want to use is
problematic as you can see here:
result=decomp(10,9);
error: out of memory or dimension too large for Octave's index type
error: called from
    decomp at line 27 column 9


in fact I need decomp(10,10)

do you see a workaround for this problem?

kind regards,

Re: Installation problem of octave 4.2.1 on Windows 10

It would be nice to know answers to these questions asked on the list earlier:

- Did you install 64 bits version or 32 bits? (Renato S. Yamane)
- Are you trying GUI version of Octave? Does the issue happen if you run the console version? (John Frain)
- Does uninstalling and reinstalling Octave help? (John Frain)
- If you start GUI, are you able to read and copy/paste what the command window says at the top, it includes useful information for troubleshooting? (John Frain)
- Does the issue happen under a new OS user? (Svetlana Tkachenko)

Please use REPLY ALL to reply to this message. Thank you!

I’m seeing the same problem on a Lenova notebook running windows 10 (v 1607).

Both 32bit and 64bit installs fail.

My 1st install was with 64bit. Which worked the first day and now consistently crashes.

I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled a few times, with no impact.

The cli version also crashes.

Nothing is displayed at the GUI command line.

The cli closes too fast to read what is there.

A work around is to run octave-cli.exe from the new Windows PowerShell.

I’m seeing the same problem on a Lenova notebook running windows 10 (v 1607).

Getting the same problem here, also with a Lenovo computer model SL510 which was originally Windows XP but is now Windows 10. It worked for a while then stopped with a message box saying "Octave Client has stopped working". I have a dell and an asus, both more modern that have no problem.

Cheers... Ian

The octave.bat file is able to start a functional CLI, but the GUI fails to start.
