There is no Win32 binary here. There are pointers to 2 different
distribution sites. Did you get the Japanese version from Hiroyuki
Senshu or the version from Wayne Buttles at fdisk? What does it report
when you invoke "lynx -version"?

This looks fine.

This sounds like you have a version that requires cp.exe to copy the
file from the temp directory to your destination directory. Some later
versions have this function built into the lynx binary. If you got the
version from fdisk, be sure that the cp.exe file is in your path. That
may be all that you need to fix the problem. If you have another file
named cp.exe earlier in your path, lynx may not be able to copy the
file properly.

I use myself with lynx. Perhaps you don't have a good URL
for text entry. Try the following, and use both frames.
