Try downloading the manager here.

I don't know why that happened, I will be interested in finding out.

Hope this helps,

Windows Vista Home Premium -> Windows 7 Home Premium

Forgive me if you already know this, but installation is a two step process.

1. Run the installer to remove the old version. Reboot.
2. Run the installer to install the new version. Reboot.

If you didn't do step 2, then you won't have anything installed. It would be nice if step 2 happened automatically.
