 I can access the admin page.  However, when I try to follow the instructions for loading
the examples I find that there is a file that I am supposed to have called post.jar which
I cannot find in the directory specified, exampledocs.  There is a file called "post" in another
directory but it does not seem to be a .jar file.

The post.jar file is in example\exampledocs in the Solr 5.2.1 download.

The "bin\post" file is a shell script for Linux/UNIX systems that offers
easier access to the SimplePostTool class included in the solr-core jar.
 Unfortunately, no Windows equivalent (post.cmd) exists yet.

If you're getting the impression that Windows is a second-class citizen
around here, you are not really wrong.  A typical Solr user has found
that the free operating systems offer better performance and stability,
with the added advantage that they don't have to pay Microsoft a pile of
money in order to get useful work done.

Windows, especially the server operating systems, is a perfectly good
platform, but it's not free.
