I am having problems running the Windows version of wget on a Windows 7 machine. When I run the command I get this error:

The program can't start because libintl3.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Is there a safe place I can download and register this DLL? I do not consider safe any of the Google results I see when searching for this file.

If you are on window 7 you should also take a look at WGet 2 for PowerShell. The powershell version could be alot more powerful depending on what you want to do with wget (and avoids the whole DLL install issue, making it more portable)

Turns out I didn't install the setup file with dependencies from this page: ("Complete package, except sources") Doh!

Or since I don't want a setup (which that "complete package" is), just the .zip dependencies are enough. – Camilo Martin Feb 9 '12 at 2:09
