I'm not an expert on the Windows side, but pending a more informed 
response, I think I need to stop you now.  So far, you're on the right 
lines, but not from here on.

The versions you mentioned, I believe, are Linux versions, not Windows. 
  You should have been able to install KMyMoney as part of the process 
you started.  Here is a link to detailed instructions for installing KDE -
http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/KDE_on_Windows/Installation .  Better 
still, follow this - http://kmymoney2.sourceforge.net/windows-install.html
The next to last shot shows selection of KMyMoney.  I think version 
4.6.2 should be there.

This next paragraph refers to the fist link I gave, but I'll leave it in 
case it helps.

(Step 2 takes you to the Download packages section.  After you have 
selected the KDE version (stable latest?), and clicked Next, you should 
see a list of available packages, And KMyMoney should be show.  Select 
that and proceed.  KMyMoney should be installed as part of that process, 
and should be in your Start menu.)

Let's know how it goes.
