    or are you trying to use the compressed file (with extension .gz)?
    
    The 1993 GNU version from link on
    http://www.gnu.org/software/gzip/gzip.html
    requires 8+3 DOS file names, but I found
    
    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/gzip-1.3.5-3.exe?download
    
    Actually you can use (recent versions of) WinZip
    The GNU versions remove the compressed file after uncompressing.
