I found this post myself before I entered my query.  I did the download and got a zip file.  It seemed that only the install.cmd file would unzip.  It produced a .cmd prompt that didn't look anything like what was described in the post.  Obviously I have done something wrong, and any guidance will be appreciated.

Everything worked fine except the "Search" function. Is there a way to activate that?
