Step 1 Option A
Download and install torbrowser, and copy from the installation the two
folders named "Tor".  Those should contain everything you need.

Step 1 Option B
Go to https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/ , look in the directory for a
recent version and hope that it includes a zip file called something like
"tor-win32-X.X.X.X-XXXX.zip".  That contains everything you need.

Step 2
Get your app to launch tor.exe with the necessary command line options for
your application.  The command line options are documented at
https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en .  At minimum you
probably want to use the -SOCKSPort and -DataDirectory options to ensure
your app's version of Tor doesn't collide with the user's own version of
Tor (if they have one installed).
