Installation

Liam Somers

Hi,

I have recently installed octave onto my laptop for my engineering course.

Unfortunately I have ran into errors when trying to open the gui file, it opens for a brief second and then instantly closes.

I have installed the 64 bit version as my operating system is x64.

If you have any ideas on how to help please respond.

 

Thanks, Liam

This sounds like the problem that I have recently found with the GUI version of various versions of Octave up and including 5.2.  (https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-octave/2020-03/msg00037.html )  By chance, it first occurred first after I installed 5.2.   I have since uninstalled and installed octave 5.2 on this laptop using both the install program and the zip version.  The GUI program crashes immediately after loading.  The laptop is a hp EliteBook 840  with 16 GB memory.  I have been unable to track the cause of the problem.  Octave GUI is the only program that is causing problems on this laptop.   

I should also add that I have installed Octave 5.2 on another laptop and updated Octave on an old desktop and the GUI works perfectly.  I have run Octave 5.2 on Linux Mint 19.3 and the GUI works as expected.  

It would be interesting to determine if your problem is the same as mine. Can you check the event viewer and see if you are getting an exception code  0xc0000374 in the faulting module ntdll.dll. The event viewer report follows -

Hi John,

 

Since emailing you I tried to install the previous version, 5.1 and it seems to work fine, Im not exactly sure on the issue that happened, but it seemed to only happen with the newest version.


Your problem is not the same as mine then.  I have tried 4.x, 5.x 32-bit, 64-bit and can not get the GUI to work except in safe mode.  Octave is the only program on this laptop that is effected and I have 64-bit octave 5.2 running on an old desktop and another laptop.  I even installed 5.2 32-bit on an old atom-based Windows 10 tablet, with IGB ram,  running 32-bit Windows and apart from the speed of operation, the GUI worked.  
 

 

Thanks,

Liam
