The package does not include the documentation. You have to download it
somewhere in your "C:" disk and then move it in the "right" position
that happens to be (in your "windows" case")
Have you tried to download the windows automated package?
For Dutch is:


When installed leave the installation place the default. In this way 
GIMP will automatically find it.
Then check that GIMP is correctly set going in to:
Edit->Preferences->Help->User manual->Use locally installed version. If
it is set defferently, set it correctly then CLOSE GIMP and RESTART GIMP
before re-try with the help key "F1".

Then I suggest you to leave it in the place where I have just showed you
(to make the GIMP "intelligent" help feature work...) and make a "link"
to it in the "my documents" directory (open "my documents"-> mouse->
right-click-> new-> link etc. etc.) You will find the help files in:

C:\program files\gimp-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\help\nl\index.html

PS: maybe "program files" is different in Dutch...
