We have Vis5D available in the Unidata McIDAS-X passworded FTP account:

McIDAS grids have to be converted to Vis5D grids before they can be
viewed in Vis5D.  Did you run the Vis5D conversion step?

I ran the import(v5dimport) command, but that probably isn't 
converting it.  I probably mis-read the instructions.
I will go back and re-read.

I got the version from the mcidas ftp account, installed
