It's a compressed tar file.  Either download an lzma.exe and tar.exe
(or bsdtar.exe) from somewhere, or try 7zip.  I have the former; in
that case, you first uncompress it with lzma and then untar with tar.
(Yes, I'm also angry on the MinGW folks that started to use this
compression before it's sufficiently widespread, at least on Windows,
and the available ports of Tar don't support it directly yet.)

Once you've unpacked the archive, the "installation" is just copy the
.exe files to some place on your PATH, and that's it.

Lisp debugger has no visibility into the C level.

No, I didn't forget step #5, and I did see `Icy' in the mode line.
Let's hope it's the missing C-M-End.
