Zend Optimizer

I'm having an issue trying to access another message board.  When I go to the homepage, or even a subforum, I'm getting a page that says this instead of what I am trying to access:

Zend Optimizer not installed

This file was encoded by the Zend Encoder / Zend SafeGuard Suite

In order to run it, please install the freely available Zend Optimizer, version 2.1.0 or later.

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been freely available since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by taking PHP's intermediate code through multiple Optimization Passes, which replace inefficient code patterns with efficient code blocks. The replacement code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to performance-improvement, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Encoder or Zend SafeGuard Suite.

The Zend Optimizer is a freely-available product from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies is the company that develops the scripting engine of PHP, also known as the Zend Engine.

My question is, is this something on my end that needs to be fixed/installed, or on the administrators end?  I've tried to download this Optimizer thing--both versions--but it cannot find my host server (if I remember the error message correctly) when I attempt to install it.  Any insight?  Thanks!

No advice, but I have the same problem. Does the message board happen to be HCW?
