Hi Johanna, Orfeo Toolbox (photogrammetry software) is quite specialized and is not part of the standard QGIS distribution. I also have no experience with it and can't help.
GRASS is different - it's a general purpose GIS and should work well with QGIS. What are you struggling with regarding GRASS? ------------- The other question is: are you (I mean your Windows user account) a long-time QGIS user who upgraded from older versions? If yes, it can mean that some "out-of-the-box" settings don't apply, since you already have settings and they won't get overwritten (people wouldn't like that). So to judge things, it may be interesting to try from a new Windows user account and test if things work fine for a new and clean user account. You could then compare the settings and copy them over to the production user who upgraded from older QGIS.
