I install   ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/pub/gretl/gujartati_data.exe 
(2015/07/15) in Windows 8.1 (Galician language) with
    * 1.10.90cvs (x86_64), release 2015/07/20, under  ...\Program Files 
(x86)\gretl\  , and
    * 1.10.90cvs (x86), release 2015/07/20, under ...\Program 
Files\gretl\  .
And the tab appears in both cases and all works fine.
