You have to install the "Windows XP Mode" download (exe file) first. Then run the "Windows Virtual PC" download. And finally the update if you need it.

Normally .msu files should install automatically when you double click them. Otherwise, you can fix the file association issue by pointing to "C:\windows\system32\wusa.exe" when prompted to choose the program you wish to open them with.
