First of all.

What OS are you using? At least on Mac you can just directly use the file without any sort of installing.

And for a windows user, to install you just double click on the .exe file and follow the prompts on the installation wizard. Pretty straight forward. It's the same way you installed 1.8.1.

First, try to get your caps-lock key fixed (= do not write in All-caps.)

Second, what did you download? If you downloaded the source package (wesnoth-1.8.3.tar.bz2), this is the wrong file.
Download wesnoth-1.8.3-win.exe. When you have this file, you can run it to install Wesnoth.

The source package is all the files from which the game is constructed. If you don't know what it is, trust me when I say you really, really don't need to. Just download the windows version.

And try to avoid double posting, please, there's an edit button for a reason. You'd probably do well to take a look at the Posting Guidelines too.
