Do you mean the whole program runs, including the interface??
Or do you mean just the interface, and maxima (the actual symbolic math)
does not run? In which case, do you get any messages?
If the maxima system does not run it is most likely you have a firewall
preventing the front end from opening a socket to attach to the maxima
Is there some reason you want to run it as a shell command? It is not
something newbies usually want to do.
The (presumably correct) response to the line .... maxima.bat -v looks like
this on my system....
C:\Program Files\Maxima-5.13.0\bin>maxima.bat -v
C:\Program Files\Maxima-5.13.0\bin>if "gcl" == "gcl" goto dogcl
maxima.exe -eval "(cl-user::run)" -f -- -v
