Of course there's no .exe or installer! You get the .lib and header files; and I think docs, or there are docs online. What else do you need?
I think the OP may be confused as to what PTK is :)
As others have said, if you've downloaded the demo then you already have it. PTK is a library of functions and classes -- a mid-level wrapper API around low-level APIs like DirectX, OpenGL, Win32 etc.
PTK is NOT a collection of tools (as in the executable sense) used to build games; there are no WYSIWYG sprite tools or level creation tools. It is not a game 'maker' like, say, Game Maker or RPG Maker. Hence, you have nothing to install or run to use PTK.
Rather, 'using' PTK is writing code that links to the PTK libraries and makes use of the provided interfaces. If you aren't a programmer (specifically C++) then PTK will likely not be much use for you. If you are then you just need to set up a project/make for your favorite compiler and off you go. There used to be a few tutorials floating around the net about this set up process.
If you are a new programmer then you are going to need to look up how to link and use libraries before PTK will do you much good :D
