What's difficult about it? Download the code to your server and follow the few simple steps in the instructions.

Have you given WAMP a shot (search for WAMP on Google)
If you only want to install Php then you will need to setup your webserver and configure it to use the php libraries when a php file needs processing

You just need to simply download & install php, To configure it Go to the c:\php folder and make copy of the file "php.ini-recommended". Name the new file "php.ini". That is, you should now have a file "c:\php\php.ini", identical in content with "c:\php\php.ini-recommended".
If you are using Apache 1, you should either move the php.ini file to your windows directory, "C:\Windows" on most systems, or configure your PATH environment variable to include "c:\php". If you don't know how to do the latter, just move the php.ini file to the "c:\windows" folder. You do not have to do this if you are using Apache 2, since we will include a directive later in the Apache 2 configuration file to specify the location of the php.ini file.

Simply download latest version of WAMP or XAMPP and install it. You will get Apache Server, MySQL, PHP installed on your computer. It's very easy to install. If you want only the PHP and not understanding the installation guide, then go for video tutorial.

First, install your selected HTTP (web) server on your system, and make sure that it works.
Run the executable installer and follow the instructions provided by the installation wizard. Two types of installation are supported - standard, which provides sensible defaults for all the settings it can, and advanced, which asks questions as it goes along.
The installation wizard gathers enough information to set up the php.ini file, and configure certain web servers to use PHP. One of the web servers the PHP installer does not configure for is Apache, so you'll need to configure it manually.
Once the installation has completed, the installer will inform you if you need to restart your system, restart the server, or just start using PHP.
