Just unzip the org-mode in some location (e.g. D:/mystuff/org-mode/) and
add following to .emacs (customize to taste/need).. mostly copied from
Org manual activation section:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'load-path "D:/mystuff/org-mode/lisp")
(require 'org-install)
;; The following lines are always needed.  Choose your own keys.
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org\\'" . org-mode))
(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(global-set-key "\C-cb" 'org-iswitchb)
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock)  ; Org buffers only
(transient-mark-mode 1)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You do not /have to/ compile the lisp files, you can use just the source
(by skipping all steps that ask for make in the installation section of
the manual.)  I am not sure how much performance impact will it have but
it's an option at least.

Do let us know how it goes.
