I suspect that you don't have a good copy of the file - Delete the copy you have (the self extracting exe)  and download it again to a different directory - Check the size of the file - it should be 812KB  
When you double click it - change the default location that it extracts to to something like c:\fixpstover2gb\       - It should extract 5 files  - When you double click the PST2G.exe it should load - there are 2 dll in that folder - if it still doesn't load or gives you an error - try seaching for each of the dll files and see if there are any newer or older dlls with the same name - they may be corrupt - try renaming the other copies to  xx.lld
