Weird. In fact, the file was bad on my machine after Wise made it. I have no
idea what I did. I made a new one and it is nice and long. Sorry. I had in
fact tested the installer but then made a legendary one last change to a
documentation file and redid it to pick that up and didn't test again. Dumb.
Didn't notice the shortness. Dumb again.

Thanks to you and others who wrote.
