There is no detailed guides on how to use them. You can read the installation guide for Openfire Openfire: Installation Guide Make sure to read the part about Windows installation. You are running into permissions/UAC problems. Either install into C:\ or run Openfire as a service.

For Spark you can go into Help > User guide and read a bit about its main functions.
