You have the wrong version. Try that at DOS/S/SWin. Not only is it
a later version (4.13, I think) of GEE, it works with both 3.3 and 4.0.
That is a mirror of

which ought to be nearer to you (but may not be).

It is not safe to assume that anything in the DOS/S directory on statlib
works with 4.0, but everything in DOS/S/SWin does (unless not needed in 4.0).

I would advise you to upgrade to 4.0 release 3. There are some subtle
differences in linking in compiled code, and I only support release 3 in
the code I have ported (and that include GEE). The upgrade is on
MathSoft's web site.
