Difficulty adding Full Text Search to SQL Server

Hi - Can anyone suggest how best to add the Full Text search option to SQL Server? When I try to add the feature in Control Panel, I get the prompt to browse for the SQL Server Install Media, and I'm unable to select files, only directories. I have the original install files (such as SQLEXPR_x86_ENU.exe, and SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe) but somehow I'm unable to select them. What's the best approach to add that feature to SQL Server 2012 Express?
Thanks,
Steve

restart the install and select to add the FTS feature. It should be similar to what is shown in http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/data-center/adding-sql-full-text-search-to-an-existing-sql-server/
