The zip file posted includes the .c source code so you should be able to compile it on any unix like operating system (i.e. macOS, Linux) or using something like Cygwin, SUA or other unix environments on windows. It also included a windows Cygwin executable, but it will only run if you install Cygwin to get the .dll file it complains about.
Thanks, I saw that, but I am only semi-competent on Windows. Unix is well past my skill level.
