The 9.00 release on that site is only 5.1 MB, so its much too small, it also
doesn't run for me, so its clearly been broken. The 8.71 release isn't there
any more so I can't tell about that one, I assume the same problem existed.

I'll look into getting someone to fix the broken executable at wisc.edu.
