Stuck, and don't know why.

Hello, LilyPond Staff:

     I'm writing a book on music (the title is my e-mail address), so I 
desparately need LilyPond to insert dozens of musical examples into my text in 
Word.  I followed all instructions, got to the end, and then ended up in a 
vicious circle.  According to the "Congratulations" message, after the PDF 
file appears showing "A scale in LilyPad," that should be it.  Yet every time 
that I try to open the program, I get the "Congratulations" message again.  I 
have been trying this for a week now...  

     Other things that happen are:  1) I get the black screen titled 
C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe.  But I was once even able to get rid of that by 
doing:  Start -----> Run -----> regsvr32 /i shell32.dll -----> Enter.

2)  A message telling me that Adobe cannot open the file.

3)  A message telling me that Windows cannot open the file because it does not 
know which program created it.  It asks me to tell it which program to use.  
That I don't know, because it is Adobe PDF that has the scale in LilyPond.

4)  A message telling me that the file cannot be opened because the computer 
cannot find libfontconfig-1-dll.  I tried Start -----> Run -----> typed that 
in -----> Enter, but that did not work, either.  Also, after the download, 
under "Show details," everything listed (and there was an awfully long list) 
showed 100%.

     One more thing.  It says in the "Congratulations" message that version 
2.10.0 is needed before one can upgrade.  But on the other hand, I have also 
had a message saying that a previous version of LilyPond has been found, and 
that I must uninstall it first.  
     So that's it.  I'm at my wit's end.  No more ideas in this head.  Can you 
help, please?  Thank you, Joseph.
