Blender for 64 Bit Windows 7 question?

so i wanted to download Blender and learn how to animate and model. I just built my first pc which i installed a 64 bit Windows 7. Now when i go to the download page it list the download depending on what OS you have. Now for 64 bit it says no Installer available but it does have the Zip Archive. so wat does that mean? im looking at the current stable version by the way which is 2.49 i wanted to download the beta 2.54 but im afraid of all the bugs and stuff. lol so i dont want to mess with it till its stable.

this is link to download page..

  1. No installer means there isn't an easy quick installation file that will install the program for you. The required files are zipped and you may need to do some manual labour to get the program running. If you don't feel like going this route, get the 32bit version. It will work just fine.
  2. All you need to do is unzip the .zip file anywhere in the hard disk you like, and you are good to go. If you want you can create a shortcut to the Blender.exe in your start menu or desktop.
