I started from scratch and followed your instructions as written but couldn't find this exe file.

As I said previously the exe file does appear if I double click the 11604 in the 7z window  but I get the magic pop-up when I click on this. The exe file is 13082012.

When I clicked extract in the 7z window and then directed the file to my local disc C/program(x86) I had lots of error messages. The result is a file cover entry in my inkscape program folder with the 11604 number but when I open this file it does not contain the exe file.
The file name is inkscape_r11604-201208132044

- could you describe the steps you have taken so far, for example, did you
hit Extract, which directory did you extract to, did you get warnings that
you were overwriting files, can you confirm that you have new files with new
dates in them, like Aug 13?
