Uncompress ffmpeg to a directory, like c:\ffmpeg

You don't have to install it. The program is located at

The simplest way is to put your mkv files in the c:\ffmpeg\bin\ directory
and run ffmpeg on them from there.

For example
cd c:\ffmpeg\bin\
ffmpeg -i homevideo1.mkv -c:v copy -c:a copy homevideo1.mp4

c:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe -i mymovie.avi -c:v copy -c:a copy -f
