Is your antivirus or zonealarm renaming it and how big is the file? If it's 170 meg or so I bet it got renamed, so you could just rename it to .exe 

This is only if you downloaded it from the link here in the forums in the 7.2 Unoffical Patch thread at the top of this forum, DO NOT rename and run this file if you got it somewhere else.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language...they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

I'm not sure, I don't have Steam, but if it asks, yes. You need to choose Basic or Plus.

Best I can tell, Basic is just text fixes like spelling and broken quest fixes, while Plus has tried to balance and restore all content, dialogs and quests.

When the run the patch, you see the readme/changelist, so you can pretty easily see which things are in the "plus" vs. "basic" patch.
