This link has a whole section on installing.

        http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/big.html

Since emacs doesn't use the registry, it's much easier to install than
most programs.  Typically one unpacks the release, sets up the path
and you're ready to go.

Versions can coexist.

Before you uninstall (by simply deleting) the old version, be sure
that you've moved any local .el files to a safe place.  For that
reason, I don't put my custom .el's in the emacs directory.
