Exactly right, yes. The export package contains a very old version of
server.exe (v 2.35). It won't work with mgpp and will almost certainly not
display your collections as the 2.39 version does. The rest of the export
package is fine however, simply replace the gsdlbinwindowsserver.exe file
(i.e. the v2.35 version from the export package) with the new version (from
the top level gsdl directory). If you then export a collection the new
version of server.exe will be included instead of the old.

I've had some trouble with IE5 before. It seems to have a quite different
javascript implementation than IE6 does. Is there a particular collection I
can have access to that demonstrates the problem?
