Since installing stuff that isn't an RPM is strongly discouraged, with
CentOS, Upstream, etc., for various very valid reasons,  it would have
been a good learning experience for me. Not sure if I had the Binary.
There was a file setup.bin     Lots of JRE stuff in the tarball.

The Winpower SW and Documentation were probably written in Taiwan by
someone whose native language isn't English. Much better than
something I write in Spanish.
