No, you probably want the patched version instead. (It is quite easy
to update it when I have uploaded a new version. Just download and run
the installer again.)

The file with the patched version is
Emacs-23-CvsP091103-EmacsW32-1.58.exe. Just download this and run it.
This file contains Emacs (slightly patched) and some GNU utilities you
might want (grep etc). It should work OTB.

The normal way to start the patched version is to call emacsclient
some way. Unlike the unpatched version this will start Emacs if it is
not already running.
