gribmap on Windows XP

I normally run GRADS in a Linux environment, but am working with
colleagues that are running Windows. I downloaded the win32e
distribution and am able to get GRADS to start and it gives me
the normal GUI.

My problem is that I can't seem to get gribmap to run on XP.
hen I issue the command I don't get any output (including when
running in verbose mode) and the .idx file is not created. I have
tried several of the "backward compatability" options  for the
gribmap executable but still no luck. Any suggestions?
