Problems installing downloaded ELPA tar file(s) of magit on Win7 Enterprise

Gnus/5.130008 (Ma Gnus v0.8) Emacs/24.3 (windows-nt)
I have to download the .tar files from ELPA archives separately and
install them locally.
However, when I try
I get the error message:
package-read-from-string: Can't read whole string
I first tried this without tar being available, so I downloaded GnuWin32
tar and copied the .exe and .dll files into emacs-24.3\bin and then
tried again, but got the same error message.
The only match on google, is this thread
and this thread doesn't have any concrete solutions, except for hinting
at using CygWin tar instead of GnuWin32 tar.
Does anyone know if this is fixable, and if so, how to fix it?
