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.
