I saw that and tried that, but it declared that "you must be Administrator to install this". I thought I was, I as installing all sorts of other software, but no go. I found your instructions, but they weren't Oracle-sourced instructions, so it seemed like it was not my problem. This is not just a matter of "I'm blocked, please help me", this is also "anyone out there trying to follow these instructions will fail, we must fix this".

You have to download and install the "Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4" from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8279 to get the 64-bit compiler (this will also install the IA64 cross compiler just in case your keen on a real adventure:)
