Thanks for all the answers. I checked out Gladman's page and tried following
the directions, but it isn't working.

I have the Express edition, and I get an error saying that this version
doesn't support solution folders. I saw something there about using 4.2.1
with express edition, but then on the GMP site there only seems to be
downloads for 4.2.2 ... does 4.2.2 not work with the express edition?
