'download rules place in c:snortrules

1) register first
2) download / extract (The Official Snort Ruleset (registered user release)
3) download / extract Community Rules 

'edit snort.conf
change 3 things
#var RULE_PATH ../rules
var RULE_PATH c:Snortrules

# dynamicpreprocessor directory /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicpreprocessor/
 dynamicpreprocessor directory c:Snortlibsnort_dynamicpreprocessor
