I have just tried to install the Wooldridge data 
on my Windows 7 VM and there was no success. The data are being 
installed in C:\Program Files\gretl

If I change the path to C:\Program Files (x86)\gretl when the 
installation warns about the path, the data are then visible in gretl as 
a new tab in the data files window.
