I figured it out thanks to that search engine that rhymes with noodle.
1. Mount the guest tool CD
2. Console into the guest
3. Switch to powershell
4. Run, "Get-Volume" to see which drive is the CD-ROM
5. In my case it was D:\. So, run "cd D:\:
6. Run the installer, ".\qnap-guest-tools-0.102.1.exe"
