The ".exe" signifies the distribution for Win32 machines, but perhaps 
you are really looking for the "win32 extensions"?  These come either 
pre-packaged in the ActivePython distribution of Python at
http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePython/
or separately (for vanilla Python) in a file called win32all
from http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/win32/Downloads.html 
(by the irreplacable Mark Hammond).

If you just wanted the basic Python installer, you were already
looking at the right thing. :)
