I hope you are at the configuration stage of DSpace config file. This link gives step-by-step instructions to install DSpace on windows. The screenshots will take a bit to appear.
I have copied in the relevant portion incase the link doesn’t work.

Subject: [Dspace-tech] Helping a non-Windows user install DSpace
Hi all. I'm trying to install DSpace 1.4.2 on my system for a trial run, but I'm a Mac person, not a Windows person, and I am totally lost in the instructions, and my IT department has bluntly refused to help. Since no one in the library knows either, I'm turning to you guys as pretty much my last option.
I've installed postgres and the other prereq software, and I've gotten to the "Update Paths" part of the install, but, while I know where to find them, I don't know what a path is, or what I'm supposed to change them to.
Could someone please either explain, or point me to an explanation, in layman's terms, of how to install this software?
