Hello Jorge,
 You do not mention which C++ compiler you plan to use for your 
application. If you are using, or plan to use, Visual C++ Express
2008, please note that installing that software gives you everything
you need to compile and link a Geant4 application. You do not need
to explicitly install or configure any additional software such as
the SDK since that is done for you as part of the installation. 
Once you have installed Visual C++ Express 2008 and configured your 
environment by calling the file:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat"

you should receive an informational message such as:

"Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 x86 tools."

The compiler should now be in your path, which you can test explicitly 
by typing:

> cl /?

On my PC, I get:

> Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 15.00.21022.08 for 80x86
> Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

followed by the compiler options.

You should now be able to download and install the Geant4 toolkit
(don't forget CLHEP).
Note that you also get the Visual Studio IDE for free with the Visual 
C++ 2008 Express installation, so you could either build your application
against the prebuilt libraries, or build them yourself using a Visual
Studio solution and project files.
Good Luck,
Norman Graf
