Can't install 11g client on Windows 7 64 bit

I downloaded both of the following files.

win32_11gR2_client.zip
win64_11gR2_client.zip

I unzipped them to

c:\OracleClient32
c:\OracleClient64

If I attempt to run setup.exe from either location, I get nothing. And I mean nothing.
Nothing in the event log, nothing in the %temp% dir. No window pops up. Nothing.

I've read the documentation, and I can't find anything wrong.

Here's my system info:

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit SP1
Intel Core i5 2.5Ghz
8GB Ram
232 GB free on C:
16 GB Swap

What is going on? I've never had so much trouble installing something before!
