I will think about this suggestion.  Obviously there is a problem, and Martin's patch is simple and seems sensible.  I just need to consider side effects.

I repeat the proposal to specify version-specific user dirs, e.g. by changing line 31 in maxima.bat to

Access to the draw package from within SMath Studio didn’t work for Maxima newer than 5.31.1-1. Fortunately, the 5.33.0 installers by David work. Here is an example: http://en.smath.info/forum/yaf_postsm12832_Maxima.aspx#post12832

Betreff: Re: [Maxima-discuss] Windows package, was: Maxima 5.33.0 release

 

I don't know if that is related. But I had the opposite problem: after installing 5.33.0.1 draw worked. After downgrading to the official version it stopped to work.
The Fix was: deleting everything in maxima_userdir.

Perhaps installing the new installer hybritized something there.

 Thanks, David. For the record, I installed it on my Windows Vista
 laptop and it mostly works except that it runs into an error
 whenever the Lisp compiler is invoked -- something about CreateProgram
 or something like that. That error is provoked several times during
 the test suite.
 OK.  There is a new windows installer
 http://billinghurst.customer.netspace.net.au/maxima-5.33.0.1.exe

 This is built the classic way.  I worked around the makeinfo problem
 using a wrapper script that calls cygwin makeinfo.  Not pretty, but it
 works for me right now.

 Postscript plotting is still broken.
