Simply unzip ElasticLoadBalancing.zip into a directory and use the individual commands such as elb-create-lb and elb-register-instances-with-lb. The archive comes with a more extensive README file that explain how to use the command line client in more detail. You can also refer to Using the Command Line Tools in the Elastic Load Balancing Developer Guide.

great solution
Hi, I am testing the new solution, and it is great, I was asking you about a solution like this 4 moths ago, and now I am running the system with two webserver behind the load balancer. Congratulations to the Amazon Team, I love this solution. Just one bug, to set the variable JAVA_HOME I can not put spaces in the path, for example C:\program files\etc, I resolved this error pasting the java folder in the root directory. Thanks a lot for everything. David Balogh
