The file SETUP.EXE will, almost certainly, extract an MSI. The two INSTMSI(x).EXE files give it away - they're installers for the Windows Installer service.

- Start the EXE
- When you see the opening 'Welcome' screen, look in the %USERPROFILE% folder structure for an MSI. It may be in %TEMP% or it may be %APPDATA%.

look for the msi vbscab has told you how to do it

once you have got your msi in the folder
just do an admin installation. that is all you need
