xrite 2 for vista - driver file has no exe to install

hi wanted to install my xrite 2 on my vista machine so I downloaded the driver file here

X-Rite: Get exactly the color you need, every time, anywhere in the world.

but when I unzipped it it does not have an install exe

had the xrite device plugged in, and windows said it found the new hardware, please point to the installer but when I tried to point it to the xrite folder windows said it could not find and open and run an installer.

suggestions? already have it installed on my win 7 machine

Did you try installing it manually through Device Manager,

Driver Install - Device Manager

Just point it to the extracted folder, no need for an exe.
