Yes. The installer doesn't give any real added benefits other than that the .blend extensions gets registered. The zip is a fully functional Blender release.

I am using 64 bit XP professional, and when I unzip the file and try to use it I get several error messages. I am running it from my desktop, do I need to run it from another location?

My machine specs are:

Dell precision T5400
Xeon quad core E5420 2.5ghz x1
8GB Ram
NVIDIA Quadro FX570 256MB DDR2 x 2

You need to have the proper redistributables installed too - see more for more info the note about that in the 64bit windows download box on the download page.
