affy is not standalone software.  you need to run it as an
R package.  you can retrieve R from cran.r-project.org.
get that installed and get a little familiar with it.

the affy package can be installed in your version of R
by running some commands inside R, once you have it installed.

getBioC("affy", rel="devel")

will start the installation process, as long as you have
sufficient web connectivity.

find the vignettes for affy on the web page under Documentation.
