Attaching screenshots to a mailing list is LOUSY netiquette - it
multiplies the bandwidth required of the mail server by the number of
subscribers. If you absolutely can't just paste the text from your
terminal, then it is still better to host your screenshot externally and
merely include only a URL in your message, rather than directly

Transcribing that message, I see an error box referring to:
The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows
you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether
you need an x86 (32-bit) or x86 (64-bit) version of the program, and
then contact the software publisher.
But this mailing list is NOT the software publisher of pre-packaged
binaries for Windows. All we publish here is the source code, that
other downstream distributions use to create pre-built binaries. So you
are better off taking your request to wherever you downloaded the
binary, or considering a different distribution of GNU software for
windows (I can recommend cygwin.com). At any rate, I'm closing this as
not a bug in the upstream database, as this is a matter between you and
the downstream distribution you used, not something upstream can control.
