Not sure what steps you've taken.  LilyPond does not exist as a stand-alone
program for Windows.  It runs under cygwin, a Linux like environment for
Windows.  It is necessary to download/install cygwin and include the
LilyPond package.  Directions for that can be found here:


Now, assuming you've installed according to the above you must understand
that LilyPond is not an interactive point-and-click program.  Simply
starting LilyPond won't do very much.  LilyPond is a batch program which is
run on an input file.  Go here to learn about the input syntax:
