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

    967259
      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!
