It would be nice to get the installation in a zip file
instead of a self extracting archiving.

The self extracting files are created with winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/). This compression method is much more efficient than zip. If you don't want to execute the self extraction exe file, you can download a rar unpacker from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/unrar.htm and then run
unrar.exe x -c- GetGnuWin32-0.6.17.exe
This will unpack GetGnuWin32-0.6.17.exe without executing the exe file. I hope that helps.
With kind regards
