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 attaching it.

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
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.
