Those are command line programs. That's why your getting a command window "flash'. You need to run them from a cmd prompt. Try running them in compatibility mode.

That being said, expand.exe (the extractor for those packed files) should already be part of W7 as it came with XP. They might even have added a compressor but I'm not in the mood to dig around my system folder right now. If they are both there, you don't need the SDK.

7-Zip will also extract those types of files via a GUI.
