Thanks, I would have never though of looking there (which I should have since that is that I do for other things...just figured installers where more complicated).

I tried to open the install package with
C:\WINNT\System32\msiexec.exe
like it had in the table near the bottom of the page.

But it came up with a window displaying the information about the insallation package, and the only option was OK.
