Unlike the full client Instant Client does not use the OUI. How to install is explained at the bottom of the download page:
I downloaded and expanded the Win 64-bit client from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/winx64soft-089540.html. Can I make use of a TNSNAMES.ORA file, or do I have to put the fully qualified entry into my tools?

You can use tnsnames.ora, all you need to do is set the environment variable TNS_ADMIN to the directory that contains tnsnames.ora
